Luli Chardonnay 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Luli Chardonnay captures the expression of the Santa Lucia Highlands: Very vibrant aromatics, pure fruit and mineral flavors with a long, elegant finish. Grapes for this wine are sourced from multiple vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Working with different vineyard sites gives added complexity to the wines. In the winery, fermentation and aging take place in a combination of stainless steel and neutral barrels to add various flavors to the wine. The stainless steel vessels keep the aromatics bright and expressive, while the neutral barrels provide a more rounded texture without overbearing oak flavor.

In Roman mythology, the god Bacchus was commonly known as the lord of wine, frivolity and intoxication. His love of the "grape fantastic" has quite obviously inspired the winemakers at Bacchant ("Worshipper of Bacchus") to produce an admirable accolade to his divineness - reminiscent of Bacchus's own decadence. The luscious Luli 2007 Chardonnay, from the cool Santa Lucia Highlands in California, is a balanced wine with superb acidity and intense flavor. A nose evocative of whipped cream tinged with lemon opens up beautifully into flavors of fresh apricot laced with citrus notes, delivering a lingering finish. Luli is a crisp, largely unoaked style of Chardonnay - just perfect with today's fresh catch.

Exotic nose of stone fruits, mango and candied lemon. The texture broadens out and displays a mineral core, followed by mouth-watering acidity that evolves into a long finish.

Light yellow. Melon and pit fruits on the nose, with notes of white flowers and honey. Expansive and open-knit, offering sweet honeydew, peach and nectarine flavors and gentle acidity. Extremely easy to drink, with good snap to the long, juicy finish.

From a small project owned Jeff Pisoni, the 2008 Chardonnay is a tropical fruit, nectarine, lemon oil, and pineapple-scented beauty displaying fresh acids, orange marmalade flavors, and good length. Drink this lovely white wine over the next several years.
