2016 DAOU Reserve Chardonnay
Winemaker Daniel Daou favors Chablis style Chardonnays which inspired him to create his own take with our unfiltered Chardonnay, creating a perfect balance between fruit acidity and toasty French oak.
Fragrant and foral, with enticing aromas of lemon zest, vanilla cream, peach and buttered toast. Nice notes of cinnamon and ginger with a hint of Asian pear round out this lovely nose. Creamy and luscious on the palate, delivering fabulous flavors of lemon cream pie, green apple, hazelnut and casaba melon, with accents of nutmeg, honeysuckle and almond. Delightfully silky on the finish, ending with toffee, tropical essences and citrusy crispness.
