This wine has a vibrant golden yellow color with aromas of ripe golden apples, citrus, and a hint of tropical fruits complex and elegant with a long finish.
The Chardonnay grape is a primary varietal for our sparkling wines, so it’s a natural transition for us to use it for a still wine, as well. This wine is made in a limited quantity as a winery exclusive.Download Fact Sheet
The grapes were harvested by hand in order to preserve the integrity of the berries. The fruit was picked early in the morning and delivered cold to our facility.Our gentle picking and handling of the fruit ensure the preservation of the freshness and finesse of the individual berry flavors.
As soon as the cold whole-cluster grapes are delivered, they are gently dumped into our press. We utilize low pressure for a very long time to extract the clear juice out of the berries. The juice is then settled overnight at cold temperature, racked off the heavy juice lees and moved directly into a mix of French oak and acacia wood barrels for alcoholic fermentation. The alcoholic fermentation is followed immediately by a malolactic fermentation that helps softening the crisp acid structure for a creamier mid-palate texture. The yeast lees are stirred every two weeks for 3 to 4 months in order to enhance the structure of the wine, as a process called “batonnage”. The wine is racked and lightly filtered just before bottling. The wine will spend a total of 10 months in barrels before bottlingDownload Fact Sheet
