Scherrer Vineyard, 2006

$ 120.00

This is a rich and complex expression of Chardonnay from the Scherrer Vineyard. The grapes were whole-cluster pressed to French oak cooperage, where primary and malolactic fermentation occurred. All of these elements were allowed to integrate during its more than yearlong residence in wood. It was bottled without fining or filtration to respect both its delicacy and its more substantial qualities.

Winemaker's Notes

Creamy and complex due to its year-and-a-half in barrel, this wine has just been released to ‘the trade’ by popular demand. It seems our Chardonnays behave something like an origami piece once they are in bottle. A few months after bottling, they show well, but then begin to fold in upon themselves so that the fruit reemerges more focused than ever after a couple of years in the bottle. It is not a simple matter of linear fruit dissipation as I hear thrown around so often. It is much the contrary. I do not fully understand the mechanism behind it, but I see it with our Chardonnays year after year.
