BACKGROUND

Father/daughter winemaking team, Mike and Natalie, love this vineyard source for their Chardonnay. The northern location gives way to cool nights, which allow sugar to mature and acid levels to stay intact. They enjoy offering an approachable Chardonnay, with just a hint of oak.

WINEMAKING

The 2014 Chardonnay was picked earlier than most, so the alcohol content would not be overbearing. The wine was fermented in stainless steel at cooler temperatures, to retain its forward fruit characteristics. A Malolactic bacterium was added to cause secondary fermentation, giving a smooth buttery flavor. 3 months in 100% new French and American oak rounded the finish.

TASTING NOTES

Papaya and buttery characteristics flood the senses. On the tongue, lime nuances mingle with butter and tropical flavors. A crisp mouthfeel, with hints of lime and toasty oak linger with rounded finish.

FOOD PAIRING

Enjoy this wine with Fish, Seafood, Cream Sauces, and Lighter Beef Meals, such as Ellena’s Alfredo Pasta recipe – published in her latest cookbook.
