Toasted hazelnut, Meyer lemon pith, plaster of Paris and lightly tart yogurt aromas make for a complex nose in this bottling from an iconic vineyard. The palate is rounded in nutty cashew and hazelnut flavors, with a baked lemon edge adding to the viscous mouthfeel.
Vivid yellow. Pear nectar, Meyer lemon, honey, tarragon and chamomile qualities on the deeply perfumed, smoke-tinged nose. Silky and concentrated, offering vibrant citrus and orchard fruit flavors that spread out and become spicier with air. Finishes with gentle grip and strong, floral-driven persistence, leaving a sweet vanilla note behind.
The 2018 Sleepy Hollow Chardonnay is a bright, elegant expression of the acclaimed Sleepy Hollow Vineyards. Drawn from the winery's favorite blocks, this Chardonnay is opulent with nimble details. Aromas of fresh-sliced Pink Lady apple lift from the glass, delivering hints of juicy pineapple and pear with caramelized brown sugar. Ripe notes of tropical fruit reveal excellent texture and mouthfeel. This wine finishes unctuous and decadent with excellent acidity that is nimble and refreshing on the palate.
