Barrel fermentation is the classic way to marry flavors of gently toasted oak to the grapes.  One new barrel was incorporated from the Sirugue Cooperage to lend sweetness and spice to the juice.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
In the glass this Chardonnay shows a medium yellow golden hue. The nose offers grilled pineapple, golden hay, and freshly buttered toast. The palate is no less exotic, presenting cashew nut, sugar cookie, lemon curd, and vanilla pudding. 94 cases produced, available only at the winery.
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 2016 vintage was no exception. We harvested 2.37 tons of beautiful grapes, slightly bronzed by the sun, on the 14th of September.
Production Notes
We also fermented a fraction of the juice in a concrete Egg shaped tank to add depth and dimension. Upon completion of fermentation the young wine was gently stirred to promote contact with the yeast lees and to create a creamy texture. Malo-lactic fermentation was inhibited.
