Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of baked apple, butterscotch, and lavender. Flavors of nougat, tangerine and blackened marshmallow.
Vineyard Notes
The fruit for this wine comes from a couple of different vineyards. One vineyard sits between 900' and 1200' elevation. Southeast aspect, with 10% grade. Rocky soil comprised of shale, limestone and clay. The other is a similar elevation but is comprised of green stone and quartz and is a Southwest aspect.
Production Notes
Chardonnay was picked at optimal ripeness. Whole cluster pressed, juice settled over night and racked to a combination of new and used French oak barrels. The wine went through partial malo-lactic fermentation and was aged for 15 months in barrel.
Winemaker Notes
2016 was quite wet in early spring making conditions challenging in the vineyard. July and August dried out and we saw good ripening and flavor development in both reds and whites. Merlot, Cab Franc and Chardonnay stood out.
