Tasting Notes

Lightly oaked and loaded with aromas of pineapple and papaya. Fresh and lively in the mouth with a finish of golden apples.

Winemaker Notes

On Sept 20th, 9.2 tons of Chardonnay were hand harvested. The fruit was pressed in a single load with a combined harvest chemistry of 21.8 Brix, TA of 67.2 g/L, and a pH of 3.3. After settling, the juice was racked to 2 tanks, and later light toast NY State oak staves were added to each tank. Malolactic fermentation was inoculated and a long cool fermentation finished in early January. The wine was racked off the lees in early February and filtered for bottling.

Food Pairing

Pairs well with roasted turkey, fish, and soft cheeses.
