The Reserve Chardonnay is barrel fermented and aged in entirely stainless steel for 10 months. It comes from only a few special blocks of the Haakon/Lenai vineyard and showcases notes of lemon curd, dried pineapple, white peach, raw hazelnuts, and yellow wildflowers. There is a bit of a leesy quality to the finish on the mid and back palate, alongside a dried thyme and honey-coated pear note. Just 370 cases produced.
