Elizabeth Spencer

2019 Chardonnay
Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley
Release Date April 2021
  • An elegantly approachable wine with delicate tropical zing to the mid-palate and full, long mouthfeel with balanced acidity and structure.

  • Harvested at dawn, whole-cluster pressed, and aged in once filled French oak barrels to add richness and depth.

  • A complex and layered nose with notes of sun ripened melon, green apples and a hint of caramel.
