Our Chardonnay opens with notes of honeycomb and crème brulee surrounded by notes of vanilla and warm baking spices. A core of acidity keeps the wine fresh on the palate to help balance it’s rich and creamy midpalate.
Zephyr Ridge Vineyard
The juice was inoculated with a Chardonnay specific yeast and allowed to ferment cool over 30 days. 100% of the blend was fermented in barrel to add rich mouth feel and complexity. We inoculated the barrels for malolactic fermentation to help contribute to the creamy mouth feel while preserving the bright natural acidity. All of the barrels were hand stirred throughout malolactic fermentation, further adding to the roundness in the mouth feel.
