Winemaker Kirby Anderson Notes
Our 2013 vintage yielded a generous harvest. After sorting and whole-cluster pressing the grapes, the pressed juice was fermented in 25% new French oak barrels. The wine underwent 100% malolactic fermentation, after which it was left “on the lees” and stirred regularly during 13 months of barrel-aging. The 2013 Dolin Estate Malibu Coast Chardonnay has a golden yellow hue and offers up aromas of pears and custard apples. It is well structured with a pleasing balance of fruit, mild acid and understated oak. The palate is rewarded with a lengthy and smooth finish.
