"The 2014 Chardonnay Edward James Estate delivers butterscotch, beeswax and brioche notes over peach cobbler, pineapple paste and marmite. The full-bodied palate provides powerful flavors, supported by a solid backbone of freshness and a satiny texture, finishing with a lingering peachiness."

"The 2014 Chardonnay Edward James Estate is another deep, powerful wine. Here it is the wine\'s vertical structure and power that stand out. Candied orange peel, spice, mint and a touch of French oak give the wine its exotic feel. Even so, the Edward James remains medium in body. This is a strong showing"

From the heritage selections of Chardonnay planted in the Edward James Estate Vineyard, named for Paul’s great-grandfather, this pale straw-hued winecomes from the third straight outstanding growing season in a row, following the excellent 2012 and 2013 vintages. Dry winter and spring conditions limited canopy vigor, and a warm growing season with a lack of extreme heat spikes resulted in prolonged, even ripening through harvest. The resulting wines possess great site specificity, depth and quality.

Whole clusters pressed while still cold from the field and Barrel fermented with indigenous yeasts for 7 months. Aged 15 months in French oak barrels, 65% new.
