Chateau Souverain Sonoma County Chardonnay 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The Chardonnay grapes were whole-cluster pressed to obtain the most delicate juice with low skin phenolics and high quality grape solids. Because the lots were fermented and aged separately in oak barrels, Ed Killian was able to create a broad palate of blending components by selecting from an array of different barrel lots. The wines completed 93% malolactic fermentation and aged sur lie, with stirring performed monthly for seven months. This classic winemaking style has resulted in an elegant integration of the fruit and oak components, and enhances the body and toasty characteristics so important to mouthfeel and finish.
