Vineyard Notes

Named for the rock quarried from the nearby hills, Yellow Rock Vineyard yields such distinctive Chardonnay that we decided it merited an Acacia single-vineyard bottling. Our 2013 Yellow Rock Chardonnay brims with lush, tropical notes—especially mango and pineapple—along with notes of pear and honey crisp apple. Hints of citrus blossom lace the aromas, while the expansive, weighty palate is perfectly balanced with a streak of citrusy acidity. Nuances of crème brûlée and baking spices from malolactic fermentation and new French oak barrels persist on the long, memorable finish.
