2019 Balverne Chardonnay

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine displays aromas of ripe green & golden apples, lemons, butterscotch, and marshmallow. The palate follows with a variety of orchard fruits, melons, lemons, and a lingering hint of spice.
Vineyard Notes
All of our Chardonnay is picked from Block 10, Clone 17, from the middle of our Estate just south of the winery. Cane pruned vines with southern exposure give this block ideal ripening with a wide range of flavor profiles. We picked four separate lots, at different ripeness, over a two-week period to achieve a broader palate of flavors for this traditional barrel fermented wine.
Winemaker Notes
This night-picked fruit was sorted and destemmed before going to the press where 65% is free-run juice. Cold-settled juice is transferred to barrels to naturally warm in the cool cellar for Native fermentation. Non-saccharomyces yeast was used for sulfite reduction prior to primary fermentation. Barrel stirring started during primary fermentation and continues through malolactic fermentation on a varied schedule for 5 months. Aged in 100% French oak with 20% new barrels.
Food Pairing Notes
Full-bodied but still crisp, this wine will pair beautifully with everything from roast chicken to summer fruit salads.
