Winemaker Jeremy Leffert Notes
Aromatically, our 2011 "Glacier Ridge" Chardonnay is driven by bright citrus and peach with underlying hints of mango and vanilla. The entrance of the flavor profile is dominated by genuine pineapple and citrus supported with zesty mid-palate acidity. The 2011 "Glacier Ridge" boasts a lemon cream and guava fruit driven finish. Our 2011 Chardonnay was harvested and gently pressed, cold settled and fermented. Chardonnay greatly benefits from a long, cool fermentation to aid in preserving the delicate aromatics and flavors that world class Chardonnay is known for throughout the wine industry. 90% of our 2011 Chardonnay remained in stainless steel sur lies for 9 months. Its' lees were stirred weekly throughout which helped build its cre ...more... amy mouth feel. 10% of the lot was aged in new French oak barrels. In entirety, our 2011 Chardonnay was prevented from going through secondary malolactic fermentation. We feel that this preserves the wines natural acidity, allowing "Glacier Ridge" to pair with a wide variety of foods.
