This fruit-forward Chardonnay displays aromas of ripe grapefruit, freshly sliced Golden Delicious apples, with touches of smoky oak and brown sugar scents. On the palate flavors are clean and balanced, with elegant notes of soft vanilla, ripe melon and just a hint of honey. Acidity is well-balanced with a satisfying lingering finish. Enjoy this refreshing wine with fresh seafood, pork, delicious soft cheeses or cream-sauce pastas.
The grapes were picked at optimal ripeness and then carefully pressed to separate the juice from the skins to preserve the bright fruit characters and crisp, clean flavors. Low-temperature tank fermentation accentuates the wine’s fruitiness and ageing with French/American oak enhances texture and complexity. Partial ml-fermentation helps to give the wine weight while maintaining the crispness of the acids.
