Product Description:

The 2017 vintage of Mayacamas Chardonnay — our team's fifth — showcases both site and vintage beautifully. Aromas of ripe lemon honeysuckle and crushed oyster shell highlight the nose. On the palate, the wine has the classic Mayacamas acidity and is framed nicely by the textural richness in the mid-palate that comes from a warm vintage. Harvested early to retain natural acidity, the grapes were sorted by hand and pressed whole cluster. Alcoholic fermentation was completed in a combination of small barrels (5% new), large format puncheon and stainless steel. Malolactic fermentation was blocked. The wine was aged on the lees for seven months, then twelve months of aging in barrel and an additional six months of aging was done in stainless steel prior to a winter bottling. - Estate
