Batch harvesting allows for different building blocks and complexity in the wine. Distinctive fresh citrus characters, green apple and pear notes are evident on the nose and palate. An extended and elegant aftertaste is supported by crisp acid and finely grained tannins. The water-bending method for barrels prepares the oak for toasting in a way that results in a softer mouthfeel.
This Chardonnay pairs well with salmon and trout, goats cheese souffle, or cauliflower centered dishes.
