The small hillside estate in Green Valley reveals a luminous straw yellow and fragrant citrus blossoms, Asian pear, welcoming bouquet of apple blossom and lemon zest. Candied ginger, green apple peel, and white fig appear on the palate, punctuated by notes of shaved almonds and honeycomb. The soft texture and complexity of this wine evoke an understated elegance, accented by crushed rock and salinity that lend it an endless finish.

THE WINE ADVOCATE Rating: 94+ "The Chardonnay Ellen Lane Estate is shy at this early stage, opening slowly to golden apples, almonds, dried hay and latent spices. The palate is light-bodied with pleasant, tangy lift, and it finishes long on a mineral note. Give it another 2-3 years in bottle. 292 cases were made. Drink: 2021 - 2027."
