Description

Tasting Note This Chardonnay is a beautiful golden color. The nose opens up with some lemon peel, pear and lemongrass notes, followed by toasted almonds and jasmine. The nose ends on a mineral tone reminiscent of gunpowder. In the mouth the wine is driven by a silky smooth texture that evolves with beautiful long acidity and a touch of sweetness ending on a refreshing mineral note.

Terroir/Vinification

Each vineyard was picked and pressed separately. After pressing, the juices were allowed to settle naturally overnight and were then put into French oak barrels. Fermentation started naturally and lasted for six months. Native malolactic fermentation occurred during this time as well. The wine spent 12 months in 30% new French oak barrels. One month prior to bottling, each lot of wine was racked and then blended to prepare for bottling.
