In its inaugural release, Peake Ranch Vineyard Chardonnay demonstrates serious potential.  It boasts depth as well as remarkable freshness.   Fruit forward by nature with hints of citrus, green papaya and pineapple skins, paired with a complementary undertone of minerality. The wine expresses aromatics of toasted almonds, butterscotch and vanilla bean with an element of opulence. Bright acid shines through a silky texture on the palate.

Wine Profile
Ratings
94 Points- Jeb Dunnuck “The 2016 Chardonnay Peake Ranch Vineyard comes from the estate vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills and has slightly more minerality and salinity as well as notes of poached pears, spice, honeyed minerality, and toasted bread. It's supple, soft and rounded on the palate, which is very much in the vintage, yet finishes clean and crisp. Aged 18 months in 45% new French oak, drink it any time over the coming 7-8 years."- Jeb Dunnuck 91 Points - Vinous "The 2016 Chardonnay Peake Ranch Vineyard is decidedly phenolic and structured in feel. Candied lemon peel and citrus notes add brightness to a wine that can be deceptive in its first approach. I would give the 2016 at least a year or two in the cellar to let the angular contours soften with time." -Antonio Galloni
