The 2015 vintage was a very good one for Bennett Valley Chardonnay. The fermentations were lengthy and cool. The primary indigenous fermentation took one month and the indigenous malolactic fermentation took about eight months. During the lengthy malolactic fermentation the barrels were topped, stirred and topped weekly. The frequent oxygen protected stirring (the barrels are fully topped prior to stirring) promotes a strong sur lees aspect that gives complexity and richness to the mid-palate. After malolactic, the wines were topped and stirred monthly and bottled on May 4th, 2017 (after 19 months in French Oak).
The wine exhibits elements of ripe red apple as well as citrus notes of lemon and lime. The wine pairs well with a variety of foods but makes an excellent stand-alone beverage. Finally, the wine finishes with nuances of crème brulee and reserved oak notes.  The 2014 Frostwatch Chardonnay received 91 Points from the Wine Spectator and 90 Points from the Wine Enthusiast.  We expect this wine to do every bit as well as it’s predecessor.
