Park Avenue elicits thoughts of icons, history, towers, and titans. Nestled between our ‘Lauren’ and ‘CIX’ Estate Vineyards, Park Avenue was our fourth Estate Vineyard to be planted and fifth to come into production. It shares the same hillside and exposure as Lauren, but has a distinctly different stretch of ancient seabed and subsoils.
As the newest addition to the Aubert Estates, the 2019 Park Avenue Chardonnay makes an exhilarating debut with attractive aromatics of citrus oils, green orchard fruit, key lime sorbet, and spiced white tea. The mineral sense and stain on the palate articulate the distinction of the vineyard site. The greenish hue on the edge of the glass is reflective of the wine’s health and youthful splendor. This is a stunning wine to drink now or hold for 10 years. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.
