Buy Layer Cake Chardonnay
The nose is reminiscent of Meyer lemons, preserved,then diced up later in the year for seasoning in a meal, Wet stones and kaffir lime blossoms waft in and out as well. The wine builds in body and texture as it sits in your mouth. Layers of kaffir lime, guava and pineapple pour in at first, and then the light, creamy texture of whipped lemon curd fills in the flavor palete. The finish is clean and crisp, lingering enough to make you want another sip … go ahead, we’ll make more next year, don’t worry.

Wine maker notes
Our approach to Chardonnay is one of non-intervention, allowing the fruit and the place to speak for itself, and then layering in our techniques to bring it to its fullest potential. We let the grapes develop fully, which in our vineyards means concentrated and complex layers of fruit, heady evocative aromatics and perfect balance of flavor. We ferment in stainless steel at low temperatures to preserve the intense, complex aromatics, and then age certain lots in 3-year air-dried French oak to accentuate and balance the concentrated fruit, adding another layer of complexity with the subtle, high-quality oak. The result is a rich wine, but with clean, pure layers of flavors and aromatics.

Layer Cake Wines are about affordable luxury. We set out to make wines that over-deliver. We fly around the world, selecting vineyard sites and hand-making wines to be sure they are true to the grape variety and the region, but never lose that stylistic thread through them that tells you, yes, this is a Layer Cake Wine. Layer Cake Wines are made on four continents and in five countries. Just when other California winemakers are settling into a nice Hawaiian vacation, we are boarding planes bound for Australia and then Argentina for harvest in the Southern Hemisphere. At the end of summer, we hustle to Italy and then Spain for the harvests there, before returning to California to make the wines here at home. Without question, our team is the hardest-working bunch in the wine business. All of this hard work is a direct result of the constant positive feedback from you, our loyal fans. We continue to strive for better and better wines every year.
