Chardonnay Unoaked 2015
About This Wine
Color: brilliant, shiny white gold with hints of diamond
On the nose: explosion of pear, granite and bubble gum with touches of white pepper, persimmon, mango and white chocolate
On the palate: bright, fresh entrance evolving on lemon, grapefruit and white peach lingering on minerality, quince and jasmine
Blend: 100% chardonnay
"2015 was the earliest vintage in the past 15 years just as 2014 was due to the drought. We started picking white varietals so early that the acidity did not have a chance to degrade and gave the wine a beautiful freshness and elegance. The challenge was to insure aromas and because of the multiple clone that we use Dijon and California clones we were able to reach a great complexity."
