  2018 Keller Estate LA CRUZ CHARDONNAY

 

The ancient sea-bed of the San Pablo Bay are mineral rich clay soils and define La Cruz Vineyard. Thirty-four acres are planted to Chardonnay. Typical to this vineyard is a pronounced bright acidity and signature spice notes. We've called the 2018 vintage a Gentleman's Harvest. The growing season was long, and harvest conditions were exceptional with long hangtime allowing perfect ripeness and paced and predictable harvest. The resulting vintage delivered very high quality, a wonderful gift that allowed us to make a magnificent La Cruz Chardonnay.

The 2018 La Cruz Chardonnay is bright and has a beautiful golden color. The wine shows aromas of tropical and stone fruit with a hint of vanillin oak. The wine is expressive in the mouth and exhibits green apple, pear, wet stone, white flowers, caramel, butter toast texture with a long, mouthwatering finish of acidity.
