2014 Chardonnay 750

2014 Chardonnay 750

TASTING NOTES

Our 2014 Chardonnay is light in color and exudes citrus, mandarin peel, and pear lime zest aromas, and subtle flavors of jasmine, narcissus, vanilla wafer and wet stones. The wine shows our signature restrained oak accompanied by bright, crisp acidity and lively minerality.

VINEYARD NOTES

Our Chardonnay blocks are nestled at the lowest elevation of our Estate, down by Conn Creek where they are surrounded on three sides by trees. The resulting environment encourages a crisp Chardonnay with a wide flavor profile that conveys the soil’s minerality and cool location. The 2013/2014 winter was very dry but rains in the spring gave a much-needed drink of water to the vines right at bud break. We harvested our Chardonnay significantly earlier than usual in order to ensure the acidity and freshness of the wine.

PRODUCTION NOTES

The grapes were whole-berry cluster pressed, and fermented in Burgundian barrels without malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in the same French barrels for nine months (20% new) before bottling in June 2015.
