“The beautiful straw yellow hue of the 2010 Jayson Chardonnay opens with aromas of honeysuckle, subtle tangerine and white peach. This wine has a bright core with hints of minerality and lemon zest, leading to a juicy, weighty long finish with lingering notes of vanilla and toast.” – Erin Green, Winemaker
James Laube, Wine Spectator, December 2011
Fresh and vibrant, with snappy, ripe pear, green apple and floral scents that show a touch of Key lime and citrus. Full-bodied and still a bit raw and leesy, but very complete. Drink now through 2018.

The grapes were hand-sorted and gently whole-cluster pressed. After overnight settling, the juice was racked to barrels for 100% native yeast barrel fermentation followed by malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in 90% new French oak barrels for eleven months on the lees, which were stirred weekly. It was not fined or sterile filtered.
