Grown in a premier block at our home ranch and made from limited barrels selected exclusively for Pennyroyal, we enjoy how this refined wine debunks a certain perception of a “Californian” Chardonnay. Though barrel fermented nine months in oak with 100% malolactic fermentation, you won’t find too much butter lurking in this spritely gem. Its potent nose of lemon verbena, flavors of lemongrass and baked nutmeg, and long finish will have many saying “Chardon-yay!”
