Turning Leaf Chardonnay Gallo Family Vineyard America California 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The Chardonnay grapes were whole cluster pressed to minimize phenolic extraction and to impart a softer, silkier, more refined texture in the wine. Once pressed, 100% of the wine was fermented around 60º F in stainless steel. Long, slow cold fermentation enhances the racy structure of this wine.

Rich full flavors of melon and citrus fruits with a hint of vanilla. Partial aging in French and American oak barrels imparts luscious mouthfeel with toasty, buttery notes followed by a crisp, clean feel.



Tasting Notes:

Our Two Rock Chardonnay is a French Chablis style wine with California ripeness. This wine is both delicate and layered, with flavors of pear and green apple balanced by rich tropical notes. A Chardonnay with no oak influence, this wine has a pleasant mineral characteristic that was imparted from the soil at our Two Rock Vineyard. An ideal complement when paired with shellfish, lighter pasta dishes, and grilled chicken.
