Beautiful deep straw color, with aromas of hazelnut and vanilla. This medium to full-body chardonnay has medium acidity with a rich mouthfeel and hints of pear and toffee.
Our Chardonnay is planted on a western, rolling hillside in the Coble Ranch Vineyard. We have two different clones of Chardonnay that are sparkling wine clones planted helping with the acidity of the wine.
The Chardonnay was harvested by clone on two separate days. Upon arrival at the winery, the Chardonnay was pressed in our pneumatic bladder press. We allowed for extended skin contact inside the press before pressing began to get maximum extraction. The juice was then cold-settled and racked to neutral oak barrels where it was inoculated. The Chardonnay aged in separate lots and was blended before bottling.
