Barrel fermentation is the classic way to marry flavors of gently toasted oak to the grapes. Several new barrels (33%) were incorporated to lend sweetness and spice. Upon completion of fermentation, the young wine was gently stirred to promote contact with the yeast lees and create a creamy texture. Malolactic fermentation was inhibited to provide a counterpoint of lively acid.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
In the glass this Chardonnay shows a medium yellow golden hue. The nose offers lemon custard, honeycomb, and grilled pineapple. The palate is no less exotic, presenting roasted macadamia nut, crème fraiche, and zesty lemon peel.
Vineyard Notes
This block has a northerly orientation which enables extended hang time that translates into tremendous flavor development at relatively low sugar levels. The 2015 vintage was no exception. We harvested a little over five tons of beautiful grapes, slightly bronzed by the sun, on the 28th of August.
