Winemaker David Fleming Notes
The 2007 Eagle's Perch Chardonnay is made of fruit grown high up on our mountainous property, overlooked by an ancient oak tree that houses a pair of golden eagles. This is the first vintage of this wine we made from 100% Dijon clones.

It was harvested and pressed using a “champagne” method to lessen bitterness and increase juice phenolics. We let it settle for 24 hours, then racked to French oak barrels - 40% new, 60% one to three years old. The lees were stirred once per month for five months. This wine was spefically crafted to highlight its complexity in all realms; aroma, flavor and mouthfeel. It is a remarkable and exotic Chardonnay, highlighting apple, pear, citrus, orange blossom and jasmine. It was bottled unf ...more... iltered, contributing to a creamy mid-palate and lingering finish.
