Zaca Mesa Chardonnay Estate 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

After hand harvesting, this Chardonnay was gently whole cluster pressed. Sixty percent of the juice was barrel fermented and aged sur lie or on the lees (yeast and solids) for 10 months in French oak barrels for complexity and richness. The remaining forty percent was then fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain its fresh fruit characters. Both portions were not allowed to go through malolactic fermentation to preserve their lively flavors.

Tasting Notes:

The resulting wine has bright mango, papaya, tangerine and pear aromas and flavors that marry with toasty oak from ten months of barrel aging. This wine will pair well with shellfish or light pasta over the next several years.
