Pali Wine Co. Chardonnay
Due to high temperatures during the Summer months, all orders will be shipped using cold pack shippers to ensure that wines are not damaged while in transit. These shippers require a minimum of 4 bottles per shipment and we will only be able to ship orders that meet this requirement. Any orders less than 4 bottles will be held until they are safe to ship.
With aromas of toasty oak, coconut shavings, lemon custard, baked apple and vanilla bean. A full and rich palate of bread dough, crème brulee, a touch of oak and pear, with a finale that lasts for at least a full minute. A beautiful and seamless Chardonnay.
“The 2014 Chardonnay Huber Vineyard has a classy bouquet of buttered orchard fruits, charcoal, toasted bread and spice. Barrel-fermented (malolactic fermentation was mostly blocked) and aged 15 months in 30% new French oak, drink this rounded, layered, yet still fresh and lively white over the coming 4-5 years.”

2013 Huber Chardonnay is our first release from this classic Sta. Rita Hills vineyard. Bright, golden straw color.The nose is overflowing with hints of butterscotch and salty ocean air. The palate explodes with lemons and pears highlighted with a dancing minerality on the tongue. Finishes with flavors of key lime pie. It was barrel fermented using minimal amounts of new French Oak.
