2016 Reserve Chardonnay
The 2016 Reserve Chardonnay was picked on October 1st after a warm, dry growing season. It was fermented in barrel and aged for 9 months in barrel. Full ML occurred in barrel as well and after almost a year of aging it was bottled in August of 2017. 60% of the barrels were in new French Oak.
This rich white depicts smoky aromas of buttered corn. On the palate, the wine is creamy and full bodied like vanilla crème brulée with a finish like flaky pie crust.
