LEOLA is from the Latin meaning "lioness and woman of presence." Our Chardonnay is named in honor of my mother, Leola, whose uniqueness is commemorated in this wine full of complexity, grown in an alluvial vineyard in Sonoma County. The wine represents the unique potential of California Chardonnay, a ripe yet balanced wine that reflects the endless sunshine of Northern California. Notes of vanilla, juicy pear and pineapple greet you on the nose. Voluminous ﬂavors of sweet pineapple juice and fresh pear with a drizzle of sweet butter. The lush fruit is balanced by clean bright acidity and lightly oaked, that leads into a long, lingering ﬁnish.
