2014 Giallo Solare, Chardonnay

$70 Buy Wine

‘Giallo Solare’ – the name of the color in which this bottle is clad, translates approximately to ‘Yellow Sun.’ Appropriately, it was mostly from Block 71 in our estate vineyard -a steep slope that faces the rising sun each morning. Extraordinary, with pure white peach and apricot fruit character, richness on the palate, and a long, mineral-laden finish. v.2014 represents only the second time we have bottled this wine, and it continues to be a singular expression of our estate.
