The 2008 Chardonnay (which sees 80% new oak and goes through full malolactic) comes from the Pisoni Vineyard. Much of this is made from the old Wente clone of Chardonnay with some from newer clones. Notes of peach blossom... The 2008 Chardonnay (which sees 80% new oak and goes through full malolactic) comes from the Pisoni Vineyard. Much of this is made from the old Wente clone of Chardonnay with some from newer clones. Notes of peach blossom citrus oil white currant honeysuckle and orange jump from the glass of this fruit-laden full-bodied style of Chardonnay with the oak well-concealed. (About 50% new French oak is used.) The wine has a layered texture good acidity and striking minerality. Drink it over the next 3-5 years.
