Kenwood Vineyards Yulupa Chardonnay 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Kenwood Vineyards Yulupa Chardonnay was created in the early 1990s to meet the growing demand for restaurant wine-by-the-glass listings. The wine is made in a pleasant, fruity style and pairs nicely with a wide range of foods. The vineyards used for the 2011 Yulupa Chardonnay were harvested in September after a cool summer that preserved the grapes’ natural acidity and fresh fruit flavors. Eighty percent of the juice was fermented in French oak and aged on the lees. Of these lots, 60 percent underwent malolactic fermentation. The remaining juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the bright, fresh fruit flavors balanced in this wine.

Located in the heart of the Sonoma Valley, Kenwood Vineyards is dedicated to producing premium wines truly representative of Sonoma County’s world-class vineyards. Kenwood Vineyards was established in 1970 in the former Pagani Brothers Winery, a historic cellar dating back to 1906. Thoroughly refurbished and modernized, the facility now boasts more than 125 stainless steel fermenting tanks and large oak uprights, and 20,000 small French and American oak barrels, all devoted to Kenwood Vineyards’ “small lot” style of winemaking. In addition to the 22-acre vineyard surrounding the winery, Kenwood Vineyards sources grapes from dozens of vineyards – many farmed sustainably, using natural soil amendments and pest controls whenever possible rather than chemicals - in Sonoma County’s best appellations, including Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma Valley and Sonoma Mountain. Each lot from each vineyard is kept separate throughout the winemaking process, enabling the winemaker to bring it to its fullest potential. This “small lot” or “cuvee” style of winemaking also enables the winemaker to draw on an exceptionally broad “palette” to assemble wines that showcase classic character, subtle complexity and superb balance. As a result, every Kenwood Vineyards wine – whether Table Wine Series, Sonoma Series, Reserve, Jack London Vineyard or Artist Series – is consistent in quality and consistently delicious. Read less

Tasting Notes:

Delicious stone fruit aromas of peach and apricot are followed by sweet vanilla and tropical fruit notes in the mouth. The viscous mouthfeel is balanced by refreshing acidity and a smooth creamy finish.
