We are thrilled to welcome the 2017 El Diablo Chardonnay to our hallmark Fall offering. Planted in 2008, El Diablo Vineyard has an average elevation of 500 feet. This tightly spaced vineyard encourages competition between the vines for a fixed amount of nutrients, resulting in reduced yields and exemplary quality.
Minimal cellar intervention and impressive terroir combine to create a wine that is both opulent and elegant. Layers of peach, apricot and cara cara orange support its backbone of racy minerality, creating a wine that is simultaneously age-worthy and immediately delicious. This wine is a fantastic addition to any collection.
Nose: Aromatic layers of peach, apricot and peripheral notes of kumquat.
Mouth: Racy minerality coupled with an unreal texture.
