Chardonnay, Wild Oak Vineyard, Sonoma Valley (2016)

Crafted in a Burgundian-style, this is an elegant Chardonnay with abundant aromas of fresh picked pear, apple blossom and graham cracker. Balanced and bright, the wine evokes flavors of juicy apple, pear galette and lemon zest before a delicate creamy finish with a note of minerality.

The fruit is picked at night and delivered to the winery while still cold to preserve the wine’s delicate flavors, aromas and acidity. Grapes are pressed whole cluster, then fermented sur lie in a temperature controlled room kept at 55 degrees to ensure slow fermentation. The wine undergoes partial malolactic fermentation and is stirred by hand
three times per week to increase mid-palate intensity. Winemaker Katie Madigan ages this wine for seven months in French oak barrels, 60% new, with a light, soft toast to create a creamy mouthfeel without heavy oak notes.
