From the Winery: "The Estate wines are a collection of expressive cuvées emanating from the most highly prized vineyard blocks on the mountain. Each harvest, our winemaking team identifies the preeminent blocks of the vintage and uses a portion of this fruit to craft wines that showcase the best of the Estate in our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc.
As a blend of our best Chardonnay vineyard sites, the Estate bottling is always one of the most compelling illustrations of our mountain estate. The wine is blended with discerning precision, balancing aromatic intrigue, texture and the Mayacamas’ signature structural elements into a pure reflection of the vintage. The 2018 Estate Chardonnay exhibits notes of caramel apple and pineapple upside down cake with subtle salinity. The rich and round palate is highlighted by fresh tropical fruits, salted caramel, and a clean inviting finish."
