Flora Springs Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2013

Winemaker's Description: The 2013 vintage yielded what Flora Springs winemaker calls "a perfectly balanced Burgundian style of Chardonnay", exhibiting expressive fruit including juicy pear, honeydew melon and fresh white peach alongside notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and turmeric. The oak (67% new; 34% seasoned) is subtle, providing warm notes of buttered toast and a lingering marzipan and vanilla creme finish.
