2019 CHARDONNAY 375mL HALF BOTTLE
The 2019 vintage was a moderate growing season throughout spring and summer. Due to cooler temperatures, harvest started slightly later than normal, around the first week of September. Consistent and moderate temperatures allowed harvest to maintain a steady pace, where it finished in early November. The near-perfect temperatures and lack of precipitation allowed the grapes to fully ripen and be harvested at the optimal time, giving our Chardonnay excellent aromatics, flavors, and mouthfeel.
Maritime influences in the evening tempered the afternoon’s warm sun, allowing for a long hang time and resulting in fully developed, concentrated flavors. Fermentation took place entirely in stainless steel tanks with minimal intervention, and lees stirring created a velvety mouthfeel. All the wine underwent 100% malolactic fermentation and was aged in French oak for
further depth and roundness.
