A gentle and idyllic growing season yielded a Chardonnay that eloquently expresses a beautiful balance of fruit, ripeness and refreshing acidity. Vivid and aromatic notes of nectarine, green apple and citrus blossom lead to sleek and refined flavors of stone fruit and guava with a mineral quality in the lingering finish.
Composition: 100% Chardonnay

The oak is beautifully integrated and broadens the wine with hazelnut and crème brûlée notes. This wine shows both dynamism and richness – a hallmark of both the 2013 vintage and Darioush’s commitment to compelling and complex varietal flavors in our Signature Chardonnay.
