30.00

Our 2016 Chardonnay consists of wine blended from two different clones, the Platt-Wente Clone and Clone 4. The wine, as always, is barrel fermented utilizing both native indigenous yeasts and malolactic bacteria, which results in long, cool, and most importantly, complex multi-layered fermentations. This gives us a chardonnay that has layers of flavors that evoke a number of different, and sequential, unique sensations on the palate. The initial impression is that of ripe red apple followed by citrus notes of lemon, lime and orange peel. On the mid-palate the wine exhibits a rich silky mouthfeel with just a nuance of well-integrated French oak. Finally, the wine concludes with a lengthy finish that is supported by good, but not over-powering acidity. The wine’s bright finish allows it to pair well with a variety of foods and soundly avoids the all too often made complaint that a second glass of chardonnay is cloying and palate fatiguing. The previous vintages (2014, 2015) of our Frostwatch bottling were both well received scoring 91 and 93 points in The Wine Spectator respectively and 90 points each from the Wine Enthusiast.
