The Essence of "Cheers to You" Chardonnay

Crafted entirely from Chardonnay grapes and bottled young directly off the lees, this wine captures the essence of our adventurous spirit. With a deep straw color, it exudes aromatic notes of apricot, vanilla, and nectarine, promising a sensory delight right from the first sniff.

On the palate, "Cheers to You" presents a rich and linear profile, culminating in a long, subtle finish where the nectarine lingers, inviting you to savor each sip. Its refreshing nature makes it perfect for warm summer days or as an accompaniment to light and fresh seafood dishes.
