2006 Dutch Bill Creek Chardonnay


Appellation: Sonoma County (1/2 each Heintz Ranch and Icaria Creek)
Bottled 9/8/07 – 490 cases
14.2% alcohol

Tasting notes:

Pale yellow with a green tinge. This wine has huge aromatics of toasty oak, tropical fruit, pears, and mandarin orange. The pallet comes across as steely with lemon zest, chamomile and the roundness of hazelnut.  Grapes: 1/2 Heintz Ranch, 1/2 Icaria Creek
