Single Vineyard Portola Chardonnay

Single Vineyard Portola Chardonnay 2016

Our Portola Vineyard Chardonnay presents lively aromas of ripe stone fruit and orange blossom with hints of white chocolate and allspice. The wine is full-bodied with a rich mouthfeel and creaminess that was achieved by stirring the less during sur lie aging

Winemakers Notes

The grapes were harvested by hand in the early morning of September 13th. At the winery the fruit was whole cluster pressed to protect the crisp flavors of the Chardonnay grapes, and the juice was settled in stainless steel tanks before being placed in French and Hungarian oak barrels for fermentation. The wine was bottled after 7 months of sur lie aging where the barrels were stirred monthly on the less to enhance the body, resulting in a wonderfully complex wine.
