Product Description:

At sunrise, the cool Chardonnay clusters were harvested and gently pressed to capture the vibrant flavors. We barrel fermented fifty percent of the juice for complexity; the rest was fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain fruitiness. All of the wine was aged on the yeast (sur lie) in both barrels and tanks for nine months to weave a myriad of American, Hungarian and French oak nuances through the fruit expression. Hints of crème brûlée on the finish result from malolactic fermentation, which rounds acidity and adds creamy nuances.
