Our Chardonnay is completely barrel-fermented and is aged in 33% new French oak barrels. The wine undergoes full malolactic fermentation and remains in contact with the barrel lees for 10 month of barrel aging. A brilliant light golden straw colored wine that is intense and vibrant, with spicy vanilla laced pear, citrus, and mineral notes. A creamy mouthfeel is followed by a tightly focused persistent finish. The oak is present, but restrained and balanced and well integrated in this full-bodied wine.
This is the second wine of eight in the Romantic Portfolio series. This wine represents the stage in the romantic story of when the two unintroduced lovers can't take their eyes off each other from across the room.
The poem on the back reads:
When our eyes met my heart said hello
Are you the one for whom I long?
