Shirtail Creek Chardonnay

Crisp and clean, this wine stands apart as a pure expression of Mount Veeder and the new face of California Chardonnay.  Our wine offers aromas of white peach and lychee with notes of jasmine and honeysuckle.  In the glass the wine is opulent, with distinct minerality and flavors of peach laced with jasmine.

WINES FROM DISTINCT REGIONS

The wines from each distinct region express the flavor characteristics of the region they were grown in.
