2012 Chardonnay Unoaked

Awards


  • Gold - 2013 Indy International Wine Competition

Harvested on second week of October from the Golden Mile Bench vineyard. With vines averaging 18-20 years old, their roots extend deep into the gravelly soils which adds minerality and complexity to the wine.

Winemaker's Notes

Our 2012 CHARDONNAY boasts of apple, pear and pineapple with a nice clean mid pallet of citrus, passion fruit and vanilla. Crisp with aftertaste of green apples and toffee. The wine leaves long lingering flavors with perfect balance of oak, green apples and vanilla.

Wine Making

Grapes are whole cluster pressed to gently release the virgin and high quality juice. The juice is then fermented in stainless steel tank to continue the delicate preservation of fruit. The wine is then aged in new French oak barrel for two to six weeks just to have a hint of oak. The wine is removed from the barrels and goes back on the tank for another 4 months.
