"Ripe, pure flavors of tropical fruits, Meyer lemons, limes and peaches mark this lovely Chardonnay. New French oak adds luscious notes of buttered toast. With crisp acidity and a clean, spicy finish, it’s a beautiful Chardonnay to drink now."

Winemaker's notes

Our 2011 Mitsuko's Vineyard Chardonnay possesses compelling and complex aromas of intense ripe nectarines, Macoun apples, tangelos, white honeysuckle, fennel pollen and beeswax, framed by subtly spicy toasty oak. A full yet perfectly balanced entry leads to an intense and vibrant mid-palate with vivid complex fruit flavors, finishing with a fascinating balance of length, richness and minerality.

About Clos Pegase

Completed in 1987, Clos Pegase was designed to be a temple to wine on a 47 acre Calistoga vineyard. The winery has a total of 450 acres, mostly located in Carneros. The Clos Pegase label features Pegasus, painted circa 1890 by the French artist Redon. This painting is winery owner Jan Shrem's favorite work of art from his extensive private collection.
