This medium-bodied Reserve Chardonnay is lush and round on the palate, while displaying the typical intensity of fruit and spicy oak aromas. Notes of creamy lemon bar and papaya are layered with subtle hints of hazelnut. While the finish is long and clean, the flavors become increasingly full and complex with time. Our experience is that these wines improve in the bottle for at least five years, although they can grow in complexity and depth for possibly ten years or more.

-NEW RELEASE- Aromas of sweet pineapple, peach and apricot blend together with barrel aromas of fig, honey and vanilla finishing with hints of white peach. Our “Chard” was hand picked and gently squeezed to allow the natural fruit character to shine through. Half of this Chardonnay was fermented in stainless steel and the other half was barrel fermented in small French oak barrels. They are then blended together to enhance the complexity of body, flavor and aroma.
The aromas in the Glory Days Chardonnay are a combination of crisp green apple, orange blossom, and sweet Meyer lemon. It is a classic example of Lodi Chardonnay and shows all the unique characteristics of the region's terroir. The flavors on the palate show apple and pear layered with bright citrus and lemon peel.
Glory Days Chardonnay is a delightful accompaniment to salads, seafood, fowl, lighter grilled meats and cream-based pastas.
