I. Brand & Family Chardonnay 'Escolle Vineyard'
WINE TYPE: White
COUNTRY: United States
APPELLATION: Santa Lucia Highlands
Honore Escolle purchased this land as a summer property for his family in 1878 establishing himself in one of the most desireable benches in Monterey County. Today the Caraccioli Family manages the land producing small production (221 cases) highly regarded juice.
Aromatics of macadamia nut, tropical fruit, lemon, and a touch of butter. The palate is wrapped in a chalky tension, delivering flavors of lemon glaze, toasted apple and a rugged, sandstone-like minerality.
