Our 2014 Gap's Crown Chardonnay is an incredibly seductive wine, conjuring the tropical fruit and sweet floral headiness of an island getaway. Bright pineapple, white blossom, and white peach aromatics leap from the glass, gaining creamy hazelnut and coconut notes on the richly integrated palate. A bit shy upon release, this wine promises to explode with intensely concentrated flavors and extraordinary richness by late 2016. Cellar for up to 5 years.

Exhibits a charming mix of buttery oak, rich fruit, baking spice nuances and an overall sense of harmony and finesse. The core apple, melon and apricot flavors are intense without being weighty, and the finish displays a measure of grace. Drink now. 201 cases made.

This is a ripe, succulent white, dark golden in color, that's lush and expansive on the palate in fleshy tropical and stone fruit. Toasted oak comes forward on the finish, accentuating the wine's nearly full-bodied nature, never getting in the way of the minerality.
