Description

"The wine is a blend of the following Chardonnay clones: UCD 4 which provides structure, acidity, and citrus flavors; Dijon 76 and 96 which add essential oils and flavor complexity; and a heritage muscat clone to introduce floral and perfumed aromatics. Fermentation consisted of 85% in oak barrels and 15% in stainless steel. Its lower alcohol and lively crispness comes from the judicious use of new barrels (30%)."
