Chardonnay
Scherrer Vineyard, 2014

$ 20.00$ 86.00

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

Nice, fresh green apple nose with a slight lemon-lime nuance greets the nose on first approach.  In the mouth it is just rich enough to carry these flavors seamlessly into the gracefully unfolding, surprisingly long finish.  The persistence on the palate is remarkably long for a wine that is not overblown or heavy, still eliciting a healthy salivary response.  I am extremely pleased with how this wine is presenting itself.

    Delivers a zesty, flinty core of citrus, green apple and honeydew flavors, with a modest kiss of oak on the aftertaste. Lingering and juicy. Drink now through 2020. 92 Points. Jim Laube

    The 2014 Chardonnay Scherrer Vineyard is soft, classy and understated. Orchard fruit, lemon peel, herb and almond are nicely delineated. Supporting beams of phenolic intensity add nuance and give the wine its shape and feel. Even so, the 2014 is a wine built on subtlety above all else. 92 Points. Antonio Galloni
