August West Rosella's Vineyard Chardonnday 2012

The 2012 August West Rosella’s Vineyard Chardonnay has a medium straw color, and a beautiful nose of nutmeg, coconut, and passion fruit. The tropical fruit nose that is typical of Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnays is very faint in the early stages of this Rosella’s. Their ’12 Rosella’s Chardonnay has a rich texture and a lot of complexity on the palate. If it didn’t have the natural, balancing acidity that the SLH always gives to its fruit, you might call this a big Chardonnay. The prime drinking window for this should be from 2015 through 2019
