Winemaker Jordan Fiorentini Notes
The 2007 season was perfect for growing Chardonnay. Ideal weather through harvest allowed grapes from every block to reach desired ripeness. All of the grapes were hand-sorted before whole cluster pressing. We included a high percentage of lees in the Chardonnay juice to add complexity and character to the wine followed by 100% native yeast fermentation in barrel, a slow malolactic fermentation and weekly bâtonnage. The 2007 Chardonnay aged in barrel for 12 months before being racked by gravity off of its settled lees and blended into tank. Bottled without fining or filtration, nothing has been added to or taken away from the wine’s distinctly ‘Chalk Hill’ character. Aromas are concentrated and complex –white flower, sweet cream, ri ...more... pe peach, lemon oil and wet stone – leading to a palate anchored with rich minerality and tropical and stone fruit. A clean acidity and mouth-filling texture unite pear, pineapple and sweet orangefruit with subtly sweet brown spice and honeyed toast. This wine’s balanced and structured palate and bright fruit indicate its age-worthiness; it can be cellared and enjoyed for at least five to seven years.
