Why You'll Love It

A delicious barrel fermented Chardonnay with all the complexity and intensity of having spent 9 months aging sur lie in barrel. The nose has hints of butterscotch and honeysuckle, on the palate the flavors move between ripe cantaloupe melon, toasted coconut and a touch of ripe Meyer lemon. Beautifully crisp acidity keeps all these powerful flavors in balance.

Winemaker Notes

Our Chardonnay grapes were hand-picked early and delivered to the vineyard whilst still cold. Whole cluster pressed and cold settled for 24 hours. Initial fermentation at cool temperature in tank until 9 brix then transferred to barrels to complete primary fermentation. Malolactic in barrel and aged sur lie for 9 months. Gently filtered before bottling.
