2017 Whitetail Chardonnay
The 2017 Whitetail Chardonnay has enticing aromas of banana, melon, and pineapple with a slight mineral hint. Creamy tropical fruits layer your mouth coaxing your next sip! Native to the Triple “R” Ranch & Winery, a herd of Whitetail deer roam alongside several exotic species. The most infamous Whitetail was “Number 19”, affectionately known as “Timmy” by the grandchildren. This small, tame whitetail was brought to the Ranch for protection after being found wandering around a local schoolyard. In 1999, Mr. Ross crafted an oaky chardonnay, named it Whitetail, and shared it with his friends. Shortly thereafter, Whitetail Chardonnay rightfully claimed its territory in the Ranch Wines Collection.
