Overview

The Federalist Chardonnay pays homage to the work of our Federalist Founding Father, Alexander Hamilton. He was responsible for defending and ratifying the U.S. Constitution during the Revolutionary War. Our passion for winemaking is as impassioned as Alexander Hamilton’s for the Constitution. The result is a influential, champion wine.

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.
