Tasting Notes
Balance and texture are the hallmarks of this beautiful single vineyard Chardonnay. The bouquet has pretty notes of softly infused white flower petal, toasted brioche, and finely crushed wet river stone. Pretty tightly wound with flavors of refreshing lemon peel and pear tart almond crumbs. Five months of intermittently suspending the lees through batonnage created a beautiful lush mid-palate. The finish is bone dry with stunning purity. This wine will continue to drink gracefully over the next three to six years.
Vineyard Notes
Our 2016 Alexander Valley Chardonnay represents the best of both worlds; the beautiful ripe fruit of California Chardonnay minus the oak, with the elegance and complexity of its Burgundian ancestor. The wine is 100% barrel-fermented with only a small percentage of new French oak aged on 100% gross lees.
