"This lush and alluring Chardonnay begins with penetrating aromas of pineapple, mango and guava. On the palate, the energetic tropical fruit elements lead to lively citrus-lime layers, as well as French oak- inspired hints of toast and fresh-churned butter. With lovely underlying acidity, the finish is sleek and refreshing, drawing the flavors to a long, vibrant close." -winery tasting notes
"To preserve the bright and delicate character of the fruit, all of the grapes went direct to press as whole clusters and were then gently pressed. After settling, 84% of the juice was racked into French oak barrels for fermentation, 18% of which were new. To provide a very fresh and focused element to the final blend, 16% of the juice stayed in stainless steel tanks for a cool fermentation and never went to barrel. The wine lots were aged on the lees for six months, both in tank and in barrel, with occasional stirring to increase richness and body. Only a partial secondary fermentation was completed, again to achieve a balance of rich mouthfeel and crisp acid. " -winemaker notes
