Bell Mountain Chardonnay, 2018

Produced by Medlock Ames

The 2018 Chardonnay offers the upfront citrus elements of lemon and orange blossom that we often find in our See’s clone, but we also find intense pome fruit aromas of pear and baked Red Delicious apple.

Barrel-aged

On the palate the wine shows bright refreshing acid, a mineral note, and flavors of lemon pie with a rich buttery crust, which begs for a second sip.
