Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
A nice and even growing season allowed for great physiological ripening and flavor development. A cooler August brought further late season development without the pressure to pick.
Production Notes
Hand harvested on September 18th, 2016 and sorted before being whole cluster pressed in a bladder press. It then settled for one day before being barreled down in to a mix of new (20%), and used barrels, and finally aging for 15 months. The wine completed both primary and malolactic fermentation in barrel with no lees stirring.
Winemaker Notes
Vibrant aromas of Bartlett pear, lanolin and citrus lead with this energetic Marine Layer Chardonnay. A sweet entry of kiwi, citrus blossom, and Manuka honey lead into a creamy and rich mid-palate of marzipan and brioche that is balanced by a racy acidity and a long, reverberating finish.
