2015 Vineyard One Chardonnay
A dense Chardonnay from a vineyard block which is known for texture-driven wines. Apricot, orange peel, white flower and banana are present in the arromatics and on the palate.
With our third vineyard-designate Chardonnay, we adjusted our wine-making to push the wine in a more texture-driven direction, highlighting the density and length we often see from our Estate Vineyard #1. Additionally, fermentation was shifted entirely to oak with more lees stirring than in previous years. The result is a denser, longer, more cerebral Chardonnay than what we’ve produced in the past.
Pair the 2015 Estate Vineyard #1 Chardonnay with fish cakes, salmon, creamy sauces, cheese based salads, and mild curries. Cheers!
