Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) This Chardonnay is non-oaked to express the pure fruit flavors of Chardonnay and the terroir and personality of the vineyards from which it originates. The grapes were hand harvested in the cool of the morning and gently pressed whole-cluster, minimizing skin contact to retain freshness and vibrancy. All of the juice was fermented in 100% stainless steel and a portion was then allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation for additional texture and character. Battonage (stirring of the lees) during sur lie aging imparted further complexity and creaminess.

Winemaker's Notes

Ripe pear, fresh peach and autumn quince mingle with warm hazelnut and toasted almond in this classic Chardonnay. The balance of fruit, oak, texture and varietal character concludes with a long, clean, lingering finish.

    My husband will only drink Chardonnay (unless he is in Paris). This is the best (least inexpensive/in a pinch wine) we can agree on.

    ブルゴーニュのピノに比べて、やはり陽性なワイン。色も明るめでベリー系の香りが自分から主張してくるような印象。その中にバニラ起因する樽香も感じるシルキーな味わい。これはテロワールなのか鉄分的な要素も感じた。2000円ほどで購入できコストパフォーマンスの良いワイン。
