2017 Rock Pile Chardonnay

$40.15

This Chardonnay has expressive and complex aromas of baked apple, brioche, lemon curd and toasted oak. It is fresh yet rich on the palate, which is full-bodied, with a creamy mouthfeel, impressive texture and a long and elegant finish.

Description

Food Pairings

This Chardonnay has enough weight and character to stand up to a variety of rich, buttery or creamy dishes. Pair with Lobster, Halibut or Scallops as well as pasta dishes with a white-creamy sauce. It also pairs well with Pork Tenderloin, Grilled Chicken and Turkey.

Winemaking Notes

Sourced entirely from well-established Chardonnay vines growing in the cool Lincoln Lakeshore sub-appellation, the barrels were selected after fermentation and aging in French oak barrels for approximately fourteen months.

The final blend is comprised of 5 barrels selected for their expression of the warm yet balanced 2017 growing season – four barrels were from the Watching Tree Vineyard (80%), while one barrel was from our own Tufford Road Vineyard (20%). The Chardonnay from each vineyard and barrel were unique and brought something to the final blend – the first release of this wine.
