2012 St Francis Chardonnay

"Aromas of orange blossom and lychee combine with pear and hazelnut flavors. This is a bright and balanced Chardonnay with a smooth, silky texture. Most of the fruit for this elegant Chardonnay comes from Sonoma Valley, which is bordered by two mountain ranges: the Mayacamas Mountains to the east and Sonoma Mountains to the west. The region’s moderate climate and cool breezes prolong ripening and lengthen hang time, promoting natural balance in this wine." -Winery [+]
