Chardonnay, Wyckoff Vineyard
Dry wine. This wine is 100% barrel fermented and has undergone maolactic fermentation which helps lower the total acidity. The barrel fermentation will make it darker with higher extract as the fermenting flavors are contained in the small 59 gallon space. This also results in a more caramel flavor and less crisp tropical nuances.
90 points & Editors Choice
This single-vineyard bottling from Columbia spent 10 months in French oak barrels. Some of the vines have reached 30 years of age. The wine is subtle and aromatic; the barrel toast weaves sinuously around scents of grain, apple and green berry, with tantalizing hints of honeysuckle and vanilla. Elegant, racy and stylish. — P.G.
