Chardonnay notes really run the gamut and this unfined, unfiltered vintage has delightful notes of English tea cookies, misty mornings, and hits the white keys of your palate (not the sharp black ones!). This wine is for my mom and if you’re lucky, Bridget is pouring on the day you visit Paso Underground. Her enthusiasm is contagious and just like this wine, she is easy to love! From 100% organic and dry farmed vineyards, this Chardonnay will give you all the warm fuzzies.
