Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Pale straw in color with a slight green tint. Aromas of citrus, pear, and green apple. Fresh and crisp citrus flavors are laced with hints of fig and guava. Bright with a well-balanced acidity this wine has a long and vibrant finish.
Vineyard Notes
The growing conditions for this vintage were unique as some varietals ripened early and some late. With an early bud break, above average rainfall, warm days, and cool nights, the Chardonnay vines were healthy but brought a lighter than normal crop, aiding in increased quality. These conditions created a bright and wonderful flavor profile of citrus and spice. The early harvest allowed the grapes to ripen to full maturity prior to picking, resulting in a crisp, well-balanced wine.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were harvested cool and gently pressed. After the juice was cold settled for 36 hours, it was fermented to dryness exclusively in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 56°F then chilled and racked in order to prevent malolactic fermentation, encouraging the wine to retain and develop its aromatic character.
Other Notes
Serving Suggestion: chilled in standard chardonnay or white wine glasses
