Overview

A full-bodied Mendocino Chardonnay featuring an aroma of lemon, pear and a touch of cinnamon. Nice entrance, juicy mid-palate with a long finish and cleansing crisp acidity. The perfect wine for light fare, deep conversation and declaring your independence.

Aging

35% new oak is primarily American and Hungarian oak, with a little bit of French. The Hungarian oak mimics French with spicy character and the American rounds it out with a sweeter finish

Fermentation

Malolactic fermentations occur post-primary fermentation. The lees are stirred through malolactic fermentation, and the wine is aged sur lies until blending.
