Winemaker's Notes

An elegant, pale golden color with aromas of vanilla, hazelnut and toast. A full-bodied Chardonnay with bright, fresh fruit flavors and a hint of oak." Grapes picked at optimum ripeness. Destemming and crushing on arrival at the winery. Enzymes are then added and the must is then refrigerated for 24-48 hours. The clear juice is then drawn off and fermentation is started with the addition of selected yeasts. Part of the wine is put into barrel for the fermentation process. Temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation is completed and the malolactic fermentation is blocked. Wine is raised in barrel & tank." Ideal as an accompaniment to a variety of cheeses, seafood, poultry and cream sauce pastas.
