Product description

A bright, balanced, French-influenced Chardonnay made from Dijon Clones 76 and 95. The flavors of the chardonnay highlight notes of caramel, roasted almond, and fruit such as melon and apricot. On the palate the wine is generous and well balanced, with a light lingering of creamy dough and oak nuances. A splash of acidity creates a persistent finish that persuades you back for another sip. Aged for 8 months with 80% in French oak barrels (3% was in new barrels) and 20% in stainless steel. 30% of the blend underwent malolactic fermentation. This composition of three different winemaking protocols provides the foundation for an excellent wine. First, stainless steel aging captures the pure varietal fruit taste. Second, the barrel aging in French oak provides a creamy richness, and third the malolactic fermentation finishes the wine with a light buttery flavor and texture.
