Buttery on the nose and in the mouth. Very creamy with hints of grass.


Winemaker's Notes:

“Clones”, a barrel-fermented chardonnay with a twist, will fit the bill with delicious style. Clones is an exotic white blend that is based primarily on ten distinct clones of Chardonnay and also includes a small percentage of five other grape varieties. The 2008 version is composed of 90% Chardonnay, 6% Tocai Friulano, 1% Gewurztraminer, 1% Aligote, 1% Semillon and 1% Viognier. The wine was fermented and raised in 24% stainless steel barrels, 51% older neutral French and Slovenian oak barrels and 25% new French oak barrels. The twenty-five percent in new oak was fermented with wild, ambient yeast. The fruit for the wine was all hand-harvested and whole cluster-pressed. The juice and wine were handled minimally and the wine was bottled by gravity on September 4, 2009.

Tasting Notes:

This dry white wine is straw-colored with medium intense aromas and flavors of pear, apple, mineral, brown spice and citrus fruit. Our 2008 Clones is medium-bodied, has moderate (12.7%) alcohol, juicy acidity and long, persistent flavors. The integration in our 2008 Clones is wonderful with a fine balance of fruit, acid, alcohol and oak. The wine shows finesse with a paradoxical texture of rich and round with a precise and angular mouth-feel. This makes a truly excellent bottle of Chardonnay.
