Rich golden straw color reveals pear and apple aromas. These aromas are enhanced by sweet spice, and an undercurrent of mineral. The wine unfolds on the palate with rich texture and balanced acid. The concentration of sweet fruit in the wine stands out as the finish lingers with crisp acidity. - the winery
We are extremely lucky to be working with 33-year-old Draper Selection Chardonnay vines on our own property, in addition to the Dijon clone Chardonnay we are fortunate to be able to purchase from Justice Vineyard, which is adjacent to and farmed by Bethel Heights. The Draper Selection gives this blend ample spice, quince and yellow pear. The Justice contributes roundness, mid-palate weight and white peach flavors. An amazingly long finish exists thanks to the old-vine fruit from Oracle.
