2016 Isabel Chardonnay
The dazzling nose presents caramel and peach, with a plump round taste bringing in herbal honey, spicy vanilla and grains of paradise.
Shaw Ranch, Calaveras County
100% Dijon clone fermented and conditioned for ten months in new French oak (Le Grand) barrels.
This chardonnay is delightful now, and will likely become even more distinctive with as much as five years in the bottle. Isabel Chardonnay is best enjoyed if served not too cold, perhaps around 50F.
