Coming from 33-year-old vines planted in the Haynes Vineyard in Coombsville. The wine offers gorgeous aromatics jump out of the glass of this amazing Chardonnay – aromas of peach, vanilla and a whiff of minerality are intertwined in this stellar Chardonnay, which I fondly call “Burgundy-West”. This medium to full bodied wine was made “au-naturel” by using native yeast and no malolactic fermentation. This wine offers a very distinct aroma and flavor). “Milady” is complex, well-balanced with an amazing textural richness. From start to finish you’ll enjoy this youngster. I would pair this wine with Dungeness Crab or a Rosemary Chicken dish fresh from the grill. Only 90 cases produced, so it will go fast!
Winemaker Notes: “Our beautiful Milady chardonnay shows notes of lemon blossom, fresh pear, dried mango and mineral character. It is built on brightness and energy, with lovely citrus, floral and savory accents. Full-bodied, precise texture with solid tension and a curated finish. Extremely polished and focused. The barrel aging on the lees brings broad mouthfeel and adds length in the end; this combination makes for a wine that is compelling and hard to resist. Drink now to 2028.”
