Lewis Vineyard Chardonnay

2018 Carneros


A compelling combination of vanilla, mango, and pineapple aromas invite the nose into this wine, where wafts of lemon curd and toast arise. The palate is rich in texture, balanced by brilliant, bracing acidity. Flavors of magnolia blossom, honey, and crème brûlée mingle in delicious harmony leading to a soft yet lengthy finish.

“This beauty has loads of caramelized orchard fruits, white flowers, honeysuckle, and toasted brioche-like aromas and flavors. It’s medium to full-bodied with high yet nicely integrated acidity and a great finish.”

Jeb Dunnuck

"Opens with gregarious scents of pineapple upside-down cake, green mango and apricot preserves with nuances of beeswax, acacia honey, praline and creme caramel. Full-bodied, the palate has a decadently oily texture with plenty of freshness to balance and layers of toasty, spicy, tropical fruits, finishing on a lingering nutty note."
