2016 Chardonnay

"With this wine we give you a Chardonnay with balance. Fermentation in mostly stainless steel tanks and neutral barrels preserves the fresh fruit aromas. A subtle percentage of new French oak barrles and a rare Black Locust barrel add a touch of vanilla and spice while respecting the smooth finish."

                                                             -Melanie Krause, Winemaker

Tasting notes

Aromas of spiced apple cider and ginger give way to flavors of citrus and a hint of toast.  The body is medium in weight with a refreshing, tart finish. 

Production notes

Grapes are hand-picked in September, pressed whole-cluster. Juice is settled to clarify, then put into barrels for fermentation. Native and commercial yeasts are used. Fermentation takes place in 50% stainless steel, 40% neutral barrels and 10% new oak (one French oak barrel and one Black Locust barrel).  After primary fermentation, all the barrels undergo maloactic fermentation with some lees stirring. Agred in the barrels for 8 month. Wine is filtered and bottled in May, 2017. 

Other notes

Be decandant and daring with this nuanced Chardonnay. We suggest you start your adventure with elk tartar or curry chicken!
