2021 Stainless Steel Chardonnay
The Chardonnay grapes are harvested at the peak of ripeness to produce balanced fruit flavors and alcohol. After harvesting, we destem and crush the grapes, then allow the skin and juice to marry and extract flavors before pressing 24hrs later. This skin contact results in vibrant fruit flavor and greater complexity. The juice is then fermented cold (65̊ F) and aged in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The cold and slow fermentation process retains the bright and crisp fruit characteristics.
