Charles Ranch Chardonnay 2012

Varietal

Chardonnay

Growing Year Info

This was a fairly mild year, similar to 2007 and 2009. The harvest looked like it was going to be early because of the early heat and bud break, but this ended up being a long, drawn out season with consistent growing temperatures. The wines have good tannins, structure, and a nice acid balance.

Tasting Notes

The 2012 Charles Ranch Chardonnay has a beautifully perfumed nose of jasmine and apple spice. The palate is dense with flavors of lemon and grapefruit, ending with a lengthy finish.
