2016 Barrel Burner Chardonnay
With enticing aromas of apple blossoms, buttery brioche and white peach, our slightly floral Chardonnay integrates classic oak nuances of vanilla, clove, and hazelnut with a luscious, creamy texture that lingers on the tongue. Notes of melon, citrus, and honeysuckle further add to the complexity of this full-bodied Central Coast wine, which finishes with an alluring richness that will
keep you coming back for more. A great match with white meats and cream-based foods, this Chardonnay is sure to please with or without food.
The grapes entered the winery as cold as possible to preserve quality by being harvested at night. They were then gently whole cluster pressed, allowed the juice to settle for one day then racked; separating the juice from the solids. The juice was naturally fermented and racked when fermentation reached a dry level. The wine was then cellared in topped vessels before bottling.
