There's a compelling combination of precision and depth on this bottling. Aromas of lemon glaze, thinly sliced Asian pear and crushed oyster shell lead into an acid-driven palate, where rounded flavors of pear, honeysuckle and celery cling to a firm, exciting structure. — Matt Kettmann
The grapes were hand picked and sorted in the vineyard. Whole cluster pressing preserved the fruit flavors with medium acidity. Barrel fermentation in 29% new French oak and partial malo-lactic ensure the wine’s silky richness and medium body. This focused, elegant chardonnay’s aromas feature Asian pear, graham cracker, and baking spices. On the palate, aromas are complemented by a light touch of toffee and Nilla wafer.
Incredibly food-friendly, the Highland Chardonnay is a perfect match for cream-sauced pastas, roast pork, and seafood. - Winemaker Notes

"White peach and creamy butter aromas are cut by steely minerality on the nose of this bottling. The palate shows a strong oak streak, with flavors of toasted nut and creamy stone fruit."
