Winemaker Murphy Moore Notes
Our Estate Chardonnay, sourced mainly from Dijon clones, is the only wine we ferment in the barrel. Four different yeast strains are used for the fermentation. Each lot makes its own unique contribution to the blend adding layers of flavor as it builds structure and complexity in the finished wine. After aging “sur lies” in a combination of American, Hungarian, and French oak for 10 months, our winemaker conducts numerous blending trials to determine the final blend that best shows the character of the vintage. The 2009 Estate Chardonnay has focused flavors of citrus, melon and hints of lime layered with vanilla and spice. Subtle notes of caramel and toast add to a pleasing mellow finish. 70% malolactic conversion provides a rich cr ...more... eamy texture while maintaining the firm structure that supports this perfectly balanced wine.
