2010 Chardonnay, Central Coast

 

Appellation: Central Coast

Composition: 100% Chardonnay

Alcohol:13.5%

pH: 3.53

Ta: .67 g/100m

Tasting Notes: Our 2010 Central Coast Chardonnay is a golden straw color and displays aromas of pears, apples and orange blossoms with subtle notes of toast and butter. On the entry, green apple acidity integrates well with a medium body mid palate mouth feel. The apricot, green apple and marmalade toast flavors evolve into a hint of minerality that adds complexity to the finish.

Winemaking Notes: Our Chardonnay fruit was 100% whole-cluster pressed to minimize astringency from the skins and immediately racked to stainless steel. Once settled, a portion was fermented in small French oak barrels while the remaining lot was left in stainless steel tanks to ferment. The slow and cool fermentation allowed the wine to develop a balance of ripe tropical fruit flavors and crisp apple and mineral nuances. Once primary fermentation was completed, a portion of the wine went through malo-lactic fermentation which softens the wine and provides a perfect balance.
