WINEMAKER NOTES
The “1772” Chardonnay is crafted from barrels hand selected by the winemaker that best represents the typicité of our Edna Valley Chardonnay. We use traditional winemaking techniques of barrel fermentation and lees aging to harmonize the flavors and aromas of our cool climate Chardonnay. This wine was fermented and aged for 11 months in small French oak barrels and underwent partial malolactic conversion. Aging wine on the lees and stirring following fermentation creates a richness in the mid-palate which lends balance to the natural acidity of the wine.

TASTING NOTES
Light gold straw color with aromas of sandalwood, freshly ground nutmeg and tangerine along with tropical notes of pineapple and mango. This wine leads with luscious flavors of grilled pineapple, Meyer lemon, honeydew melon and vanilla wafer cookie. With a rich mid-palate on entry and well balanced acidity throughout, this wine proffers an extravagantly silky finish with hints of salinity. Our food pairing recommendations would include seared Halibut or pork tenderloin topped with a chutney sauce.
