Winemaker Notes:  Crème de Lys Chardonnay entices the drinker with aromas filled with lush tropical fruit, baked apple, toasty oak and crème brûlée notes. These aromas are echoed in the beautifully balanced flavors, with juicy pineapple, citrus and red apple expression adding liveliness to the textured palate. The Crème de Lys winemaker chose California vineyards that yield vibrant Chardonnay grapes, and then developed the wine’s rich, creamy style with barrel fermentation, malolactic fermentation and gentle stirring during sur lie aging. French oak added warm vanilla tones to the fruity aromas, silky flavors and lingering crème brûlée finish, making this wine the perfect reward at the end of your day
