Winemaker Notes
A basket full of freshly picked apples is the perfect description for the aromatics of the Olivet Lane Chardonnay. Made exclusively from the Old Wente selection of Chardonnay, this wine is also typified by notes of spiced pear and quince. While floral and delicate on the nose, the wine is deceptively structured on the palate owing to the tannins and perfectly accented oak elements. Refreshing acidity stretches out the palate and the wine finishes with subtle minerality.

Butter poached lobster, or even a lobster roll, would be an outstanding match.

Rated 95 Points Wine Enthusiast
A hearty, full-bodied expression of fresh apple, pear and a trace of nutmeg, this is an impressive wine that shows density and concentration. Its richness extends on the palate, making it a fine companion for equally rich foods.

Rated 94 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2019 Chardonnay Olivet Lane Vineyard has a perfume of white flowers and peaches with lush, honey-like undertones and notes of roasted almonds. The medium-bodied palate is satiny and polished with expansive fruit character, seamless freshness and a long, mineral-driven finish.

Rated 91 Points Wine Spectator
Juicy and rich-tasting, with hints of glazed apricot to the baked apple and ripe pear flavors that are backed by firm acidity. Features savory hints on the spicy finish. Drink now through 2024.
