Bright tangerine and pear fruit aromas are highlighted by clove and nutmeg. This medium-bodied wine has a crisp acidity and long finish, with pear and toasty butterscotch oak flavors, and a creamy texture.

Toasted Head Chardonnay is aged on its lees. By stirring the lees in each barrel once a week for six months, the wine picks up a mellow, creamy texture, and the oak flavors are softened.
Toasted Head and the fire-breathing bear began their amazing journey in 1995. From a winery tucked away in the Dunnigan Hills of Yolo County, they set out to spread the word of toasted barrels and their distinctive influence on wine. Toasted Head is named for the age-old practice of toasting barrel heads and staves that imparts a mellow, toasted flavor to barrel-aged wines. The fire-breathing bear on our label was originally inspired by a drawing created by artist Robert Shetterly for a poem entitled ”Speaking Fire at Stones.”
