2015 Chardonnay 750ml
84 cases produced.
Beautiful concentration of flavors compensated for the small Chardonnay crop we had in 2015, down 40% in volume and with the earliest harvest on record for this Chardonnay block. The grapes were harvested in August, before the heat that occurred later in the month and early September. This wine was 100% barrel fermented in French oak barrels and completed malolactic fermentation without inoculation.
Our 2015 Chardonnay is a beautiful clear light straw color with a slightly golden hue. The aroma recalls delicate brioche, nougat and lemon blossom, opening to aromatic cardamom spice and coriander. On the palate the wine is lively and lingering, with a hint of minerality and a persistent finish of white nectarine and juicy stone fruits.
