Francis Ford Coppola Chardonnay California Votre Santé 2009
We start with fruit selections chosen for their aromatic properties and flavor intensity. Our Votre Santé Chardonnay is crafted using a split fermentation technique, where half of the fruit is fermented in oak and half is fermented in stainless steel. This method produces the perfect degree of richness and spice nuances from the wood so the wine has body and character, but also derives a good balance of ripe, expressive fruit. Since we believe wine is best enjoyed with a delicious meal and the company of good friends, we craft our Chardonnay in a food-friendly style that has a moderate level of natural acidity. Finally, a small percentage of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation to create a luscious mouthfeel. All of these efforts produce a wine with succulent fruit, a light buttery texture and just a kiss of toasted oak.
