**from winery website:

In 2006, we had a very small crop at Gold Coast Vineyard. Our Chardonnay produced 1.3 tons per acre and the resulting wine is intense in its aromatics, flavor, and texture. As always, we whole-cluster pressed the harvested grapes and put the juice into Francois Freres French oak barrels (25% new) for fermentation. Malolactic was allowed in barrel, and the wine aged sur lie (on its sediment or lees) for 10 months before racking and the blend assembled. The wine was lightly fined and cold stabilized before returning to barrel for an additional 2 months (total barrel aging 12 months). Bottled in early September 2007. 1000 cases produced.

The wine is a rich yellow/gold in color, with aromatics of pears, nutmeg, barrel toast, and ocean mist. Rich in texture, the flavors include spiced apple, pear, and vanilla bean. The wine finishes with a burst of pineapple, citrus and mineral flavors, balanced with good acidity.
