2012 Red Hen Ranch Chardonnay
The Red Hen Ranch is our “home vineyard” where our winery resides, and has long been a favorite of our family. The fruit from this ranch produces a very rich and complex Chardonnay.

With a clear, lemon colored appearance, this chardonnay opens up with developing aromas of tropical fruit, ginger, and elderflower. A creamy mouth feel rounds out the tart acidity while flavors of yellow apple, pear, and toasted brioche linger on the palate.
