Wolffer Estate la Ferme Martin Chardonnay 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: Light golden in color. Lush yet elegant aromas fill the glass with hints of ripe Peaches and some mineral notes. The mouth-feel is vibrant and medium bodied with beautiful play between the lush ripe fruit and elegant acidity. The finish is long and very focused with some fine tannins making this wine very food friendly.This is the perfect summer wine not overburdened by Oak or Alcohol. Technical Notes: 100% Chardonnay After one of the best growing seasons with ample heat and sunlight the hand harvest for the La Ferme Martin Chardonnay began September 28th and lasted till October 18th. We separated 8 different parcels to capture the fresh fruit character of each. The fruit was immediately gentle pressed and the juice was well settled at 50ºF up to 48hr, to highlight the vibrant fruit. 87.5% of the juice was fermented in stainless steel at cold temperatures (63ºF) and 12.5% fermented in barrels and aged for 2 months sur lees in new French oak. The wine underwent 12.5% malolactic fermentation and was blended after the 2 months and filtered. 4368 cases/750ml and 277 cases/375ml were bottled in August 2006. Serving Suggestions: The fresh rich and elegant fruit flavors and mouth-feel make this wine very food friendly and versatile to match with all kinds of foods from Shellfish to red meat to Chinese and spicy Asian dishes. However it is screaming Oysters, Oysters and more Oysters!

This Chardonnay comes to us from the heart of Long Island, on the South Fork. Tropical flavors, with lemon zest, and a warm toasty note on the finish.
