Ingrid's Chardonnay 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The warm, beautiful 2004 vintage had us picking our Ingrid's Chardonnay much earlier than normal, on September 2nd and 3rd. However even in a warm year, Ingrid's vineyard in mid-Carmel Valley retains a crisp natural and a bright fruity style. Our 2004 has developed a beautiful bottle bouquet exhibiting notes of ripe apple and pear mingled with aromas of crème brûlée. On the palate, the flavors of citrus and tropical fruits are supported by a crisp acidity making this a very food-friendly wine, perfect for drinking throughout the coming year. All Bernardus Chardonnays are fermented in small lots using several different yeast strains including a portion of native yeast. This gives is us a variety of styles from which to make the final blends We also hand stir each barrel (bâttonnage) every three weeks to build mouthfeel and increase complexity. Appellation: Carmel Valley Cooperage: 100% French oak, 35% of which is new Coopers: François Frères, Cadus, Sirugue and Dargaud & Jaegle Case Production: 493

Bernardus Winery & Vineyard:
The focus of Bernardus is to create wines that flatter the palate and stimulate the imagination. Our Marinus Estate Bordeaux-style red wine is the centerpiece of Ben Pon's dream. It is complemented by Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc from cool coastal climate vineyards. We also offer limited bottlings of small production and vineyard designate wines, which are available exclusively through the tasting room and wine club...taste a dream.
