Wine Description

Bright, straw-green colored hue. The clean freshness of the nose opens up with ivid fruit aromas of green apples, pears, peaches, and a touch of quince and kiwi. The palate echoes the bright fruit bouquet braced by crisp acidity and a lngering minerality. The finish brings the fruit,balance and finesse of this wine full circle.

Winemaker's Notes

After a gentle pressing with the aid of stems, the wine was inoculated in stainless steel tanks before a slow, cold fermentation occurred in French oak barrels primarily, with one quarter fermenting in stainless steel. After two months of sur-lie aging and batonnage to elevate the mouthfeel of the mid-palate, the wine underwent only 28% malolactic fermentation to retain its bright acidity. The wine was aged in 100% French oak (55% new, 11 cooperages) for 4.5 months before bottling.

    Not your oh-so-tired buttery chardonnay but rather moderately dry, yet sweet, with a tiny hint of stone fruit. It's quite bright.
