We are, once again, so honored to present our Chardonnay Reserve from the Canada Family Vineyards. Vines ranging in age from 4 years to 35 years, are meticulously maintained by Brenda, Dewayne and Daniel Canada in Plains, TX, just about as far west in the Texas Panhandle as one can drive. The wine is full-bodied, rich with citrus, overripe tree fruit and melons, balanced with the minerality driven from the black, granitic soil in which the grapevines thrive. We take this wine very seriously and are equally meticulous with the fermentation and barrel aging program. French barrels are purchased new for these grapes every year, but a choice selection of new and mildly used barrels is chosen for aging. Two years in French oak barrels lends a buttery nose that quickly opens to Asian pears, a creamy palate of almonds, ripe mango, and a twist of lemon peel.

Aromatics: Almonds, petrichor, buttery nuances with ripe tree fruit and citrus flowers

On the Palate: toasty brioche and ripe tropical fruits, lingering mango and citrus

Enjoy now, age 5-7 years

Serve at 55°F

This is absolutely my favorite Chardonnay! Very rich and buttery and not over oaked.

The wine is excellent. Bought a bottle at the store and then ordered five more to be delivered to my home in FL. Arrived in such a short time and no mishaps. Will definitely be ordering more.

Great chardonnay! Tasted it at the winery, which is very beautiful, and loved it. Even bought some to take to my mother-in-law! She loved it too!
