Winemaker Chad Joseph Notes
Tasting Notes Fresh, medium bodied white wine with notes of pineapple and green apple fruit. Pleasantly creamy, with hints of butter, with a silky mouthfeel. It has flavors of lemon grass, hazelnut and vanilla that carry the complex finish. Vineyard Notes Three Lodi vineyards were the fruit sources that made up this 2016 vintage of Chardonnay. First we have the a vineyard farmed by Todd Maley. This vineyard is located near Woodbridge and is considered to be in the Mokelumne River Sub AVA of the Lodi Appellation. Second, we sourced grapes from a vineyard known as the Elk Vineyard, farmed by Round Valley Ranches and is near the Clements hills. Finally, we have a vineyard grown by Mohr-Fry Ranches. All of the vineyards were sustaina ...more... bly farmed and certified green under Lodi Rules. Winemaker Notes Grapes were hand-picked in the morning and gently whole cluster pressed to a temperature controlled stainless steel tank. The juice was racked and fermented in two separate lots, each lot represent their respective vineyard. The Ridenour fruit was wild fermented, the Elk & Mohr- Fry fruit were inoculated with cultured yeast. Both stainless steel and oak barrels were used in fermentation, each lot was kept cool for a long fermentation. All three lots of wine were aged in French Oak barrels. All the wine went through malolactic fermentation. The three lots were combined prior to bottling to create a beautiful complex wine.
