WINEMAKER NOTES
The 1772 Chardonnay is Tolosa’s classic Chardonnay, as it captures the essence of our estate vineyard, Edna Ranch. This Chardonnay is barrel fermented, with a variety of yeasts used throughout the different lots to enhance the complexities in the wine. Early on during the ageing process, the wine received Batonnage twice a week for 3 months to build a richer mid-palate. The wine aged for 9 months in French oak barrels and completed 100% malolactic fermentation. The Chardonnay maintains a fresh acidity similar to the wines produced in Burgundy, while showcasing an expressive California fruit profile.
