For Tom Gore, farming isn?t a profession; it?s a way of life. His family helped develop the vineyards of Northern California appellation into a world-class winemaking region. Tom grows his grapes using meticulous farming techniques, and works closely with winemakers. Together, they taste the wines at various stages throughout their development and collaborate on the blending process. Fermented in 60% barrel and 40% stainless steel, our chardonnay is pale gold in color with intense aromas of Fiji apple with lightly tropical notes of citrus and juicy, ripe pear complemented by toasted oak and spice. The fruit follows through in the flavor with bright acidity balanced by a creamy texture and a long, full finish. Varietal: 98% chardonnay, 2% sauvignon blanc.
