Winemaker Jeffrey Blair Notes
Only 220 cases produced. Delfina’s Vineyard is the very heart and soul of the Blair Estate label. Named after our beloved grandmother, the vineyard sits on the first property purchased by our grandparents in the 1920s. This "field blend" consists of Chardonnay clones 95 and 809. The free run and lightly pressed juice underwent primary fermention in new French oak barrels. Malolactic conversion, extended lees stirring, and nine months aging in new Francois Frere and Seguin Moreau barrels completed this complex, layered white. Intense apple, pineapple, and citrus flavors meld seamlessly with a streak of vanilla, creme brulee, and spice. Our trademark cool climate acidity keeps the wine in balance. A perfect match with creamsauced pastas or r ...more... oast turkey or chicken.
