The Genevieve’s Block Chardonnay has one of the most distinctive nose of any Chardonnay we have tasted, making this wine a consistent gem in our portfolio. Slow ripening at this vineyard means that this is one of the last Chardonnays we pick each year. With 2018 being the coolest vintage since 2011, a wet winter and spring led to a cool, even, protracted growing season with no heat spikes. The 2018 vintage rewarded winemakers and will reward drinkers with elegant, bright and fresh wines.Visit Our Store
