Kramer Vineyards Chardonnay Yamhill-Carlton Barrel Select 2007
The grapes were whole cluster pressed, and settled overnight in a stainless steel tank. The juice was racked to 50% new French oak barrels. Each barrel was inoculated individually, using five strains of yeast. After primary fermentation was complete, the wine aged on the lees and stirred twice per month. In the spring, the wine was racked and the heavy lees discarded. The wine was returned to the barrels and aged until bottling in the fall; about ten months total.
Food Pairings for Kramer Vineyards Chardonnay Yamhill-Carlton Barrel Select
This is a wine for Chardonnay lovers. Buttery, oaky aromas are punctuated with citrus and pineapple notes, and undertones of cucumber and stone. The soft texture and medium-light body display bright tree fruit flavors, with rich, creamy butter. The oak reappears in the long finish, with hints of smoke.
