TASTING NOTES

Fresh and fruity with notes of green apple and lemon supported by soft, toasty oak with a touch of minerality. Medium-bodied on the palate with flavours of apple, vanilla and butterscotch. The finish is long with savoury notes refreshing the palate.

Serve chilled with rich creamy pasta dishes or chicken with mushroom sauce. Let the glass warm up a bit for further complexities to develop.

WINEMAKING NOTES

The grapes for our Chardonnay 2017 come from our neighbor Lado Viscek’s vineyard located in the Creek Shores sub-appellation. They were harvested in late September and immediately full-cluster pressed, then fermented and aged in French oak barrels of a variety of sizes (225L, 400L and 500L) and a variety of ages, averaging 10% new oak. After rigorous tasting, Jean-Pierre Colas decided on the final blend and bottled the wine in early July 2018 following light fining and filtration.
