TASTING NOTES
Pine Ridge's Collines Vineyard benefits from cool, foggy mornings and afternoon breezes from nearby San Pablo Bay. These conditions are ideal for growing Chardonnay and contribute to a slow and even rate of fruit maturity, leading to optimal balance of sugar and acid. This 38-acre vineyard is planted with devigorating rootstock and features a number of Dijon clones, including 76, 95, 96, & 548, which tend to yield high acidity.

Alcohol: 13.9%
93 POINTS - "This wine is multifaceted. Its complex aromas and flavors feature ripe core fruits, creamy oak, savory spices, & accents from the earth." - Wilfred Wong

90 POINTS - "This is a smooth, floral white crisp in white flowers and a bite of grapefruit. The midpalate settles into more substantial elements of fresh pear and nutmeg, finishing in a hint of reduction" - Wine Enthusiast
Aromas are inviting with notes of oak, vanilla, citrus, apples, and pineapple. This single vineyard produces a structured and voluptuous Chardonnay with generous fruit flavors of apple, citrus, and tropical fruit, with nuances of caramel and spice from oak aging. A nutty character and notes of apple crumble complement the bright citrus accents. The silky, creamy mouthfeel combines with bright acidity and leads to a clean, lingering finish.
