This small-batch Chardonnay is crafted from only a small block of hand-harvested grapes. The whole bunches are pressed and directly transferred into oak for wild fermentation. 25% of the oak is new, while 75% is seasoned. This gives the wine a round balanced body and distinctive texture.
The Chardonnay undergoes 100% malolactic fermentation, which adds complexity and richness. It is aged for 8 months on lees without lees stirring, followed by 2 months of tank settling. This results in a wine with a unique and refined tasting experience.
On the nose, the wine is full of ripe fruit aromas, such as apple, pear, and peach. There are also hints of vanilla, toast, and spice.
On the palate, the wine is rich and creamy, with a touch of minerality from the limestone soil its grown in. The fruit flavors are well-balanced with the oak, and the finish is long and lingering.
