"By nose and mouth it ripe grapefruit


Winemaker's Notes:

All of our Chardonnay is handled one lot at a time. Only as the grapes arrive at the winery do we decide how to treat them. Sometimes it is straight to the press as whole clusters, while other times a cold soak might be necessary. All of the UnOaked Chardonnay had about one hour of skin contact in the press before pressing, to allow the right amount of skin contact, followed by a cold stainless steel fermentation to retain esters, i.e., brightness, minerality and exotic fruit elements.

Tasting Notes:

By nose: minerality with a hint of lees. By mouth: intense minerality and mandarin orange. Perfect with a light lunch as well as olives, salads, mussels, shrimp, pastas with white or tomato sauce, ham and swiss on rye sandwiches, not too much mustard and potato chips.
