ROBERT PARKER
The Chardonnays are all barrel-fermented in puncheons and barrels, and go through 100% malolactic. The 2015 Chardonnay Pastorale Vineyard has a gorgeous nose of orange blossoms, ginger and allspice over a core of ripe peaches, apple pie and pink grapefruit plus a waft of cedar. Medium-bodied with a seductive satiny texture, it delivers intense stone fruit and mineral flavors with superb grace, finishing long and multi-layered.

VINOUS (ANTONIO GALLONI)
The 2015 Chardonnay Pastorale Vineyard is a little bit brighter in style than the Freestone tasted alongside it. White orchard fruit, green pear and mint are nicely pushed forward. Most of the wine was fermented and aged in 500-liter barrels, which helps preserve freshness, energy and tension. A slightly reductive note on the finish reinforces an impression of vibrancy. This is superb stuff.
