Rudd Bacigalupi Vineyard Chardonnay 2006
Exhibits classic fruit with mineral and toast aromas, a rich mid-palate and a long finish, typical characteristics of this old Chardonnay vineyard. This wine also shows more of the floral aromas often seen in old Wente selections. Once harvested, the grapes were gently whole-cluster pressed, and the juice was then gravity-fed to French oak barrels in Rudd's underground caves. Native yeasts were allowed to induce a leisurely primary fermentation. The following summer, native bacteria completed the malolactic fermentation. Weekly stirring of the lees occurred until the secondary fermentation was complete in late summer, and then the wine was stirred monthly for the remainder of time in barrel. After 17 months in barrel, the wine was racked to tank, settled, and minimally fined before being bottled
