Buena Vista Carneros Winery Ramal Vineyard Chardonnay 2006
These Chardonnay grapes were hand harvested at night to preserve fruit character. Due to the geological diversity of our estate, we harvest blocks based upon optimum ripeness and flavor maturity. The grapes were whole cluster pressed, and the juice was fermented in barrels and aged sur lie, with the lees stirred every two weeks for 5-6 months. 100% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged in French oak barrels (31% new) for 8 months. With this vintage Buena Vista Carneros has started to use screwcap as the preferred closure on its wines. "I am adamant in delivering the best expression of our vineyards. I believe this closure captures the pure Chardonnay aromas and flavors and will deliver the best quality in the glass.” remarks Winemaker Jeff Stewart.
