The nose of this wine offers dazzling aromas of fresh orchard fruit, including Asian pear, green apple and white peach, as well as richer notes of white corn, lemon custard and a hint of nuttiness. On the palate, flavors of spicy pear and nectarine are supported by seamlessly integrated oak and just a touch of acidity, resulting in a lovely texture, and a long, resonant finish.
The 2016 growing season delivered a gorgeous Summit Chardonnay, with head-turning layers of orange marmalade, yellow plum, rosewater, hazelnut, jasmine and honeysuckle. The gorgeous high-tone elements are echoed on the palate, where they are underscored by a rich, creamy mouthfeel and well-balanced acidity, which contributes to a vibrant and focused finish.
Striking a lovely balanced between richness and elegance, this silky-textured Chardonnay evolves in the glass. Alluring layers of pear, caramelized lemon, hazelnut and vanilla slowly give way to more complex honeysuckle, mineral and spice notes. The flavors are framed by just enough acidity to add poise and focus on the long finish.
