Tasting Notes

"The 2019 Chardonnay shows medium yellow to pale gold in color with expressive aromas of green apple, fresh pineapple, citrus blossom, limestone and marzipan. This intensely flavorful wine combines lemon curd, Asian pear, crème fraiche and oyster shell on the palate. The mouthfeel is lively with brisk acidity and an elegant texture. The energetic finish lingers with flavors of green melon and apple." - Bryan Otis, Proprietor

Awards & Accolades

"The 2019 Chardonnay Cottage Reserve is harder to read and shows a reductive style with quality orchard and citrus fruit slowly emerging with air. Medium-bodied on the palate, it's vibrant and racy, with good mid-palate concentration, impressive overall balance, and a great finish. It deserves a year in bottle and should be an outstanding Chardonnay with a solid 3-5 years of longevity. It's another impressive wine from this estate."
