1772 Pure Chardonnay 2016
Our reserve stainless Chardonnay reflects the minimal influence by winemaking to capitalize on the maximum expression of the fruit. The wine was fermented at very low temperatures to retain the volatile aromas of the esters generated during fermentation and underwent no malolactic conversion. This wine was aged on the lees to accentuate the richness in the mid-palate which achieves a balance with the natural acidity of the wine.
Light gold straw color with aromas of Bartlett pear, honeysuckle, white peach, honey comb and hints of fresh Star jasmine. The luscious flavors of sweet pineapple, lemon zest and pear panos are immediately evident, leading to a silky mid-palate that finishes with the slight hint of marshmallow crème. The richness in texture is balanced with the natural backbone of acidity from the grapes.
