Winemaker Jim McMahon Notes
The fruit was harvested in late September, 2008 with 90% from Saralee's vineyard in Russian River and 10% from Sangiacomo vineyard in Carneros, Sonoma Valley. Following a whole cluster press, it was barrel fermented using 25% New and 75% neutral French oak barrels. Only 50% of the wine was put through Malo-lactic fermentation to add richness. The end result was a wine with a complex and juicy mix of honeysuckle, bartlett pear and lemon meringue flavors with hints of nutmeg on the finish. Enjoy Athair chardonnay with halibut, select cheeses or just served chilled and enjoy with friends! Jim
