2015 Reserve Chardonnay
This subtle buttery white depicts light pastries and Key lime aromas with flavors accented by mineral and toasted marshmallows. Tropical notes linger on the tongue. It all converges on the long, resonant finish. The wine will age for a decade or more and is a perfect complement to scallops, oysters and creamy risotto.
The 2015 Reserve Chardonnay was picked on August 27th after a warm, dry growing season. It was fermented in barrel and aged for 11 months in barrel. Partial ML occurred in barrel as well and after almost a year of aging it was bottled in August of 2016. 60% of the barrels were in new French Oak.
