Ellen Lane Vineyard, our small hillside estate in Green Valley, produces the coolest expression of chardonnay in our portfolio. Luminous pale straw in color, the 2013 vintage shows defined aromas of white tea, lemongrass and daffodil. The clean, complex palate is balanced with flavors of baked apple, stone fruit and lime rind leading to a long, memorable finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chardonnay Ellen Lane Estate is a little shy at this youthful stage, offering pretty peach blossom and jasmine notes over a core of ripe apricots and spiced apples, plus a waft of brioche. Full-bodied with a great backbone of freshness cutting through the concentrated stone fruit and mineral flavors, it finishes with great persistence.

Wine SpectatorBig, intense and powerful, gaining vivacity from the fruit purity of the pippin apple, grapefruit and citrus notes and the vibrancy of the acidity. Impressive, with a few edges that should round out to make for a more agreeable experience. Drink now through 2022. 457 cases made.
