2015 "Rebound" Chardonnay
This spirited Chardonnay is nothing but net. The vineyard where these grapes are grown practices sustainable winegrowing, employing a variety of sustainable farming and water conservation techniques to improve the environment for the vines. This white wine exhibits flavors of white peach, melded with finely balanced oak, offering a palate full of delicious surprises.
This wine’s mouth-feel reflects the creamy textures of great Chardonnays and, typical of our winemaker’s style, it is balanced with refreshing acidity.
The oak contribution has a number of different winemaking techniques. Some portion of the wine is fermented in brand new oak with continual lees stirring (called Batonnage) while another is fermented in neutral white oak, again with continual lees stirring and extended lees contact post ferment.
These portions are blended with wine that has been exclusively stainless steel fermented to add both depth and complexity. Therefore, you receive the full array of flavors that the variety has to offer.
