2018 Small Lot ChardonnayRegular price $30.00
This Chardonnay was hand harvested from our estate vineyard and gently whole cluster pressed. The juice was then cold settled in tank before going to barrel for Fermentation and malolactic fermentation. The wine was then aged for 9 months in 30% new French oak. Once aging was complete the wine was then racked back into tank where it was stabilized and filtered before bottling.
Tasting NotesThis Chardonnay shows a vibrant medium straw colour. A complex wine with initial aromas of golden delicious apple, Bartlett pear and hints of citrus. As the glass is swirled hints of biscuit, vanilla, lees, and soft oak nuances become evident. An elegant and structured wine that is focused and balanced. This wine presents subtle notes of fresh orchard fruit and citrus on the palate followed by toasted lees, vanilla, tree nuts, and oak. A medium bodied Chardonnay that showcases beautiful acidity and a lingering minerality that remains through a long finish.
This chardonnay is an ideal match for grilled seafood, roasted chicken with tarragon and morels, Butternut Squash Ravioli, and of course a variety of cheeses.
