2020 Bon Vivant Chardonnay
Each year when crafting the Bon Vivant Chardonnay, our winemaking team selects only the finest barrels in our cellar to assemble our most exceptional expression of the varietal. As our most limited offering of Chardonnay, the Bon Vivant truly lives up to its name of luxury and leisure.
Pronounced aromas of Meyer lemon, confectioners sugar, lemon tea and daphne flowers leap from the glass. The palate is sophisticated with a medley of influence; warmth and spice from 100% new oak aging balanced with a creamy mouthfeel and attentive acidity. Flavors boast of grapefruit, lemon tart, wet stone, green apple and baking spice.
