This wine is fermented cold and slow to retain bright fruit aromas, then aged in a combination of stainless tank and neutral barrels on the yeast lees for about 4 months. To preserve acidity we do not allow mallow lactic fermentation to occur. The resulting wine is a bright, clean expression of citrus and peach aromas with a tangy and refreshing palate.
Our cool climate allows us to achieve a ripe and opulent style of Chardonnay that retains ample acidity. Soft, toasty notes from sur-lie aging enhance aromas of citrus and pineapple. We limit the influence of new oak to showcase the effects of soil and climate.
