Winemaker Jeffrey Blair Notes
Our second Roger Rose Vineyard Chardonnay release. We purchased 2013 vintage fruit from our neighbors in the Arroyo Seco. The Roger Rose Vineyard is one of those classic A.S. sites - cobblestone soils, wind-swept cool climate - perfect for growing elegant Chardonnay. Twenty-five percent of the juice was fermented and aged in new French oak with malolactic fermentation; fifty percent was fermented and aged in neutral French oak barrels, all having extended lees stirring. Twenty-five percent was fermented and aged in small stainless steel barrels to preserve the beautiful acidity and fruit character This limited release of only 220 cases is trademark cool-climate Chardonnay. Tropical fruit and citrus character, with just a touch of warm, s ...more... picy, vanillin-oak. The wine's structure and refreshing acidity makes it an incredibly versatile match for a variety of foods: cream-sauced pastas, roast salmon, shellfish, chicken, you name it. We're really proud of this one...
