Flavor Profile


The Oak Reserve

Vintage: 2017

Appellation: Santa Lucia Highlands, CA

Varietal: Chardonnay

The Oak delivers a fresh, fruit forward Chardonnay. The grapes are harvested at optimal maturity and processed utilizing reductive winemaking techniques. This handling allows the more subtle aromas and flavors to be retained.

A small amount of new French Oak provides the ideal textural finish with just enough fine tannin to complete the wine’s structure. The grapes were harvested quite ripe, leading to a gentle warmth of alcohol which sits wonderfully with the lively natural acid.
