2016 Rock Pile Chardonnay


This Chardonnay has expressive and complex aromas of baked apple, brioche, lemon curd and toasted oak. It is fresh yet rich on the palate, which is full-bodied, with a creamy mouthfeel, impressive texture and a long and elegant finish.

Food Pairings

This Chardonnay has enough weight and character to stand up to a variety of rich, buttery or creamy dishes. Pair with Lobster, Halibut or Scallops as well as pasta dishes with a white-creamy sauce. It also pairs well with Pork Tenderloin, Grilled Chicken and Turkey.

Winemaking Notes

Sourced entirely from well-established Chardonnay vines growing in the cool Lincoln Lakeshore sub-appellation, the barrels were selected after fermentation and aging in French oak barrels for approximately fourteen months. The final blend is comprised of 5 barrels selected for their expression of the warm yet balanced 2016 growing season – four barrels were from the Watching Tree Vineyard (80%), while one barrel was from our own Tufford Road Vineyard (20%). The Chardonnay from each vineyard and barrel were unique and brought something to the final blend – the first release of this wine.
