The wine completed native yeast fermentation and native malo-lactic conversion in barrel, with lees stirring two to three times each week. The Chardonnay’s seamless integration, weight and round mouthfeel are products of its barrel fermentation and the stirring of the lees. This wine presents complex aromas of melon, pineapple and green apple. On the palate, subtle spice is complemented by a pleasing freshness.

More about this wine

Winemaker Notes
Dijon clones 95 and 96 from Solomon Hills provide a supple base with bright acidity and tropical and citrus notes. Our winemaking is minimalist: cold fermentation with native yeast, aging in neutral French oak and lees stirring twice a week for six months.
