2011 Upper Barn Chardonnay
The Upper Barn® is our most transporting Chardonnay, and the 2011 vintage is particularly expressive. Orange blossom, peach and chalk flood the nose, while the palate mirrors those flavors with a savory, underpinning note and pronounced mineral and spice elements in the lengthy finish. The texture is filigreed, exhibiting that delicacy of fruit and a river rock quality—the transparency that only age and a superb site can bring to a wine.
