Zio Tony Ranch Chardonnay 2016

Varietal

Chardonnay

Growing Year Info

Although 2016 received just below average rainfall, it was still considered the last year of our 5-year drought. However, this adequate amount of rain at the appropriate time led to favorable conditions for bloom, which resulted in an even fruit-set and good vine balance. Summer temperatures were cooler, which allowed the fruit to ripen slowly and develop deeper flavors. The weather held steady through harvest allowing us to pick the fruit at optimum maturity levels, resulting in wines full of finesse and intensity.

Tasting Notes

Our 2016 Zio Tony Ranch Chardonnay has aromas of lemon pie, powdered sugar with a hint of cinnamon. This wine is rich and weighty on the palate with sweet Meyer lemon, cream and persimmon.
