Bread and Butter Chardonnay
2011 CHARDONNAY WINEMAKER NOTES
The wine is bright and clean in the glass with a beautiful golden yellow tone.The aromas of fresh butter, vanilla oak, and citrus fruit combine in a way that reminds me of orange Creamsicle,with a floral, jasmine hint. A decadent introduction.
The aromas introduced in the nose continue on the palate. Buttered popcorn and vanilla oak characters mingle with flavors of honeydew melon, lemon peel, papaya, jasmine, honeysuckle, banana, and lychee.The richness and creaminess of our Chardonnay lends itself well to creamy sauces and fish dishes. I like it with soft, mild cheeses and chicken breast.
The 2011 Chardonnay was aged in 40% French. 20%Hungarian, and 40% American oak. All were a combination of new and used oak with medium toasts. The wine was aged for 10 months before bottling. The wine underwent 100% malolactic fermentation after
primary fermentation, maximizing both the buttery flavors and softer textures.
