Stone Lion Chardonnay 2018
We always leave a block of Chardonnay to hang on the vine a little longer to develop a richer and riper profile, as a result this is always the last of the Chardonnay grapes to be harvested. The Chardonnay develops a riper profile lending to the wines luscious mouthfeel and tropical aromas. The wine was 100% barrel fermented in French oak barrels and underwent complete malolactic fermentation. The Stone Lion Chardonnay spends the most time in barrel, 15 months, compared to the rest of our Chardonnay program.
