On the nose, tropical - mango, fresh pineapple, and blood orange - with the essence of vanilla at the edge.
In the mouth, creamy and sweet entry, soft and succulent, showing more tropical and citrus notes - pineapple, orange, grapefruit, mango. A long finish of blood orange. Pair with great crusty bread, fine olive oil and white bean dip.
This wine will age 5-10 years gracefully.
Regarding the Unionville Home Vineyard and Mountain Road Vineyard Chardonnays: The beauty is how intensely location, soil, and slope differences affect wines. Both wines are made from the same variety of white grape: Chardonnay. However, each is produced solely from grapes harvested from one single vineyard. Unionville Home Vineyard is sloped slightly northeast; the soil is clay loam and decomposing shale. Mountain Road Vineyard has a steep south-facing slope and a calcareous gravelly soil. Taste the difference between these wines and explore the concept of terroir.
