Why You'll Love It

Bursting with aromas of bakers spice, brioche and apple blossoms, this chardonnay has all the hallmarks of Carneros terroir. Bright acidity counterbalances ripe fruit, verging int the melon, cantaloupe and pear, spectrum, whilst keeping some green apple flavors for balance. The soft touch of oak helps support the complexity and depth of the wine, giving a touch of vanilla alongside the more secondary characteristics of fresh croissant and toasty hazelnuts. The palate is long and evolving allowing the drinker to savor all the character and intensity this wine has to offer.

Winemaker Notes

Our Hommage Chardonnay was night harvested and delivered cold in the wee hours of the morning for immediate gentle and controlled whole cluster pressing, ensuring the highest quality grape juice possible. The juice was then racked into barrels, and fermentation proceeded slowly in our cool cellar. Following primary fermentation, the wine was allowed to go through full malolactic fermentation in barrel. Individual wine lots were kept separate and stirred frequently aging sur lie for 28 months without racking. In early 2016, the wine was racked up to tank to prepare for bottling.
