2014 Improbable Chardonnay

Sold Out! - - 2014 Chardonnay


El Dorado

El Dorado is not where we expected to find Chardonnay to our liking but when offered 30 plus year old Musqué clone, ownrooted Chardonnay we could not resist. Such an “improbable” place to find our style of Chardonnay (minerality, acidity)! What fun to be so wrong and this wine will shine as the temperatures rise.
