The 2016 Chardonnay Reserve is entirely from the Canada Family Vineyard in Plains, TX, where the age of the vines span 4 years to 35 years old. Taking an Old World approach to this fruit maintains the more classic style for this wine. In addition to fermenting in all French Allier barrels, 40% of which were new, using yeast clones specially isolated from top Burgundy producers allows for such a large aroma profile and decadent full mouth feel. Six months of sur lie, or "on lees" aging, further develops the silky, full mouth feel and round finish, enhancing the natural flavors of the Chardonnay grape. 

Aromatics: Citrus flowers, gardenia and honeycomb

On the Palate: Rich creamy mid-palate with hints of butterscotch, apples and tea, medium body and medium acidity

Enjoy now, age 5 years.

Serve chilled at 55ºF
