2018 Legacy Elsie's Chardonnay
Named after Bill Stoller’s aunt, Elsie’s is considered our most opulent style of Chardonnay from our estate. Alluring aromatics of wet stone, Stargazer lily, and lemon curd fill the glass. The palate is vibrant, showing notes of citrus zest and crème brûlée with a touch of minerality on the finish.
Carefully blended from barrels of our oldest planted Chardonnay on the estate, our goal for this wine is to craft a synergistic blend designed for longevity. A defining factor of Elsie’s Chardonnay is that it spends an additional six months in neutral puncheons with extended lees contact to facilitate a rich mouthfeel to complement the bright acidity.
