Wnery Notes: The Upper Barn® is our most transporting Chardonnay, and the 2012 vintage is no exception. Stargazer lily, peach and a quiet spice note flood the nose, while the palate mirrors those qualities alongside a savory underpinning. The texture is filigreed, exhibiting that delicacy of fruit and a quartz-like transparency that only age and a superb site can bring to a wine.

One of my favorites is the 2012 Chardonnay Upper Barn, which boasts remarkable intensity as well as lots of tropical fruit, a stony-like minerality, and a full-bodied, layered mouthfeel. This is a multi-dimensional, profound Chardonnay (as it often was when made by Helen Turley) from a vineyard planted with an Old Wente clone as well as the Hyde clone of Chardonnay. It should drink well for 5-6 years

Bright medium yellow. Brilliantly pure aromas and flavors of ripe peach, green melon, soft citrus fruit and brown spices are complicated by a subtle leesy quality. Hugely rich, pliant and sweet but with harmonious acidity and an impression of dusty extract framing the wine's almost exotic fruit. This is bigger than most red wines but not at all over the top. The wonderfully tactile, youthful finish features outstanding palate-drenching length. Exceptional Chardonnay.
