TASTING NOTES

Granny Smith Apples, lemon curd, pineapple, and warm vanilla leap out of the glass. The palate is full bodied with sweet citrus notes, butterscotch, green melon, and light oak toast. Glossy mouthfeel and a long lingering finish make this Chardonnay incredibly elegant and well balanced.

WINEMAKING

The grapes were gently pressed off the skins in a zero-oxygen environment to preserve freshness and prevent premature oxidation. Once cold settled the wine was racked and fermented in stainless steel at a chilling 50 degrees using a combination of wild type and commercial yeasts for almost 6 weeks. A small portion of the wine was native fermented in neutral French oak barrels. Post fermentation the wine was stored in all neutral French oak barrels for 7 months where it underwent periodic “batonnage” which is a process of homogenizing the lees with the finished wine to enhance mouthfeel and create a sense of creaminess. The wine was blended to taste and bottled in August 2018.
