User Reviews for Tolosa Winery Chardonnay Edna Valley No-Oak Chardonnay

Winemaker's Notes:

In our No Oak Chardonnay we have very few tools for effecting flavor compared to our barrel fermented Chardonnay. In some ways even though the winemaking method is simpler for the No Oak, it is more difficult to achieve the highest quality outcome. We have found that harvesting the fruit at night when it is cold and then pressing it very gently and minimizing juice yield per ton is the path to the best white wines. The wines are fermented in stainless tanks using yeast strains selected both for perfume and silkiness on the palate. It is our desire that this wine have a similar weight and richness as our barrel fermented wines, but without the oak character.

Tasting Notes:

The clear pale greenish gold color is appropriate for this style of wine. Aromas are fruity with tropical notes of pineapple and guava as well as a ripe Asian pear. Flavors in the mouth follow and it is fresh without any drying harshness. The mid palate is full and the wine has surprising finish length for its category. There are high levels of minerality and grain.
