Burly Chardonnay 2015
Burly Chardonnay is sourced from the Razi vineyard and produces an intense wine with aromas of peaches and lemon. At first swirl, oak and vanilla with a touch of butter leap from the glass. The palate has rich flavors of lemon and melon which are supported by elegant minerality and lively acidity. The sur lie aging rounds out this wine, creating a broad mid palate and a smooth lingering finish. The grapes were picked early in the morning and came in cold. The grapes were pressed into new oak barrels and cold fermented by native yeast. The fermentation took 35 days at 65° F. The wine was then aged sur lie for 17 months.
