2018 Chardonnay

Notes of bosc pears on the nose, followed by a burst of fresh white peaches on the soft palate. The finish is crisp, dry, and refreshing.

Grapes were picked and pressed at cool temperatures, then juice was gently moved into barrels to undergo primary fermentation in Francois Freres French oak barrels. Primary fermentation lasted for an average of 14 days followed by a malolactic fermentation which completed prior to the arrival of winter. The lees in each barrel were gently stirred for 7 months using a technique called batonnage to encourage the development of a rich, complex palate and a tantalizing mouthfeel. In summer, the Chardonnay was bottled under the Vino-Lok glass closure to preserve the essence of the wine.
This Chardonnay pairs perfectly with the classic New-England seafood boil of lobster, clams, mussels, potatoes and corn on the cob. The wine is also rich and substantial enough to pair with roasted Thanksgiving turkey and all of the meal’s accompaniments.
