Pali Wine Co. 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.
