Chardonnay 2012
WINE OVERVIEW

Cool climate and chalky soil produces a Chablis-style Chard with limited oak.

Tasting Notes

The fresh and lively aromas are all about Chardonnay´s identity: citrus fruits such as lemons and tangerines, apples and white flowers with some charming touches of spicy honey. The character of the limestone soils comes out more when you taste it.

Food Pairing

Pair it with a delicately sauced halibut or linguini with shellfish.

Tech Details

Harvested by hand during the last week of February, the grapes were lightly pressed (very slowly) to obtain the cleanest and clearest juice possible. After a slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks, 50% went to a combo of new, 2nd, and 3rd use French oak barrels. No malolactic fermentation at all, but the lees were stirred. After 9 months, the stainless and barrel-aged components were blended and bottled.
