Individual parcels of fruit were picked on successive cool mornings. The grapes were pressed and the juice settled for 24 hours. The clear juice was transferred into stainless steel barrels for a three week fermentation. Once that fermentation was complete the young wine rested on its yeast lee for six months prior to blending and bottling.
Typical Chardonnay notes of white nectarine and fresh citrus show through on the nose. Subtle notes of talc, mineral and flint are in the background. The main impression on the palate is that of freshness with a hint of flintiness. The purity of the Chardonnay fruit flavor, coupled with sensitive winemaking, has resulted in a medium bodied, well focused wine. This wine is dry, but not austere which lends itself to the role of thirst quencher/whistle wetter. An excellent wine to put yourself on the outside of.
