We are very picky about the Chardonnay we bring in as there is so much bad stuff out there (as well as many beautiful wines.) From the winery description: “… from a selection of cooler vineyard blocks that come together to provide a Chardonnay with charming elegance and naturally derived vitality. We take care in the cellar to raise this wine with very little new oak (roughly 10% in 2013) minimal lees stirring, and only partial malolactic fermentation to retain natural acidity. These methods help preserve the delicacy of our vibrant fruit sources and give full voice to the coastal influences suggested by its name.”
Don’t drink too cold (if it was in the refrigerator, give it a bit of time to warm up.) This wine is in it’s optimum drinking window now until 2019.
