Martinelli Road Chardonnay 2014

Varietal

Chardonnay

Growing Year Info

The growing year in 2014 was the third dry year in a row and was full of unforeseen challenges provided by Mother Nature. You would think the ongoing drought, excessive heat from March thru June, and hail in early April would have brought down the quality of this vintage. Thankfully this was not the case! Even though the harvest was very early, the small berry sizes and healthy yields have produced very well balanced wines; they are not over-bearing in tannin or structure, and are a pleasure to drink.

Tasting Notes

Our 2014 Martinelli Road Chardonnay has an aromatic nose with tropical fruit, green apple, and toasted nuts. The palate is supple and concentrated with flavors of lemon curd and golden stone fruit, balanced with light minerality on the finish.
