Winemaker David Coventry Notes
Hand harvested fruit was immediately pressed into stainless steel tanks to cold settle for 48 hours prior to being transferred to a combination of French oak and stainless steel barrels for fermentation. After the completion of primary fermentation, the young wine was allowed to go through malolactic fermentation to add complexity and a supple mouthfeel. The 2014 Manzoni Chardonnay is a vibrant example of the Santa Lucia Highlands in an exceptional vintage. Aromas of dense tropical fruits leap out of the glass wrapped in subtle brioche that hints towards uncommon richness and weight. In the palette, this wine is unusually nimble while maintaining the intensity and mouth-feel promised by its exotic aromatics. Flavors of mango, mandarin or ...more... ange and guava are led by hard spices and vanilla into a long finish. Crisp acidity allows this wine to flow over the tongue with focus and clarity that completes the experience.
