Our inaugural Chardonnay from DAOU Mountain offers a beautifully exuberant nose of white blossom, peach preserve and tropical fruit with enchanting suggestions of toast, brioche and chalky earth. A rich, decadent palate is balanced by tremendous minerality and lingering elegance. While big, bold and sexy in the mouth, it reveals an incredible texture with manifold layers of complexity. This is an immediately approachable Chardonnay that will evolve into a real tour de force in the years to come.
