Rich and mouth filling, the melon flavors of this wine are complimented with the influence of oak. The finish is creamy and lingering making it a perfect pair for grilled chicken and pasta.
Our 2014 Chardonel Reserve was selected from our best Chardonel grapes and fermented in new American Oak barrels making this rich wine.
100% New American Oak
We selected the best of the Chardonel and fermented it in new American Oak barrels with a pair of yeasts. After primary fermentation we put them through a secondary malolactic fermentation. The barrels were then stirred weekly until we achieved the perfect balance of oak and yeast characters to balance the fruit. The wine was then transferred to a tank for cold settling and the barrels were turned over to red wines.
