2011 Jayson Chardonnay North Coast

The 2011 Jayson Chardonnay, bright golden in hue, opens with luscious aromas of apricot, white peach and toasted brioche. Lemon zest turns juicy and creamy on the palate, framed by fresh, cleansing acidity.

“The 2009 Jayson Chardonnay is pale yellow-green in color.  Composed of both Napa Valley and Sonoma Coast fruit, it reveals 
kiwi, melon, tangelo and lemon-lime curd with an underlying flintiness and minerality.  Tropical fruit flavors come through on 
the luscious palate, balanced by a crisp acidity.” – Erin Green, Winemaker  “The 2009 Jayson Chardonnay is pale yellow-green in color.  Composed of both Napa Valley and Sonoma Coast fruit, it reveals kiwi, melon, tangelo and lemon-lime curd with an underlying flintiness and minerality.  Tropical fruit flavors come through on the luscious palate, balanced by a crisp acidity.” – Erin Green, Winemaker
