2016 Chardonnay 750

2016 Chardonnay 750

TASTING NOTES

Seavey's 2016 Chardonnay will give great pleasure to our loyal Chardonnay followers. This vintage leads with subtle aromas of grapefruit, honeysuckle and bergamot. Its luscious juicy acidity takes is infused with lemongrass, guava, fresh ginger, and fresh cut apple. Clean and laser-focused, the light and delicate mouthfeel of this wine is delightful but a long, expressive finish is there as well. As always, you will find Seavey's characteristic light oak 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 2015/2016 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 2017.
