2018 Moon Mountain Chardonnay
Our very first Chardonnay!
In 2018 we bought just under a ton of Wente clone Chardonnay from Moon Mountain Vineyard. In an effort to make a Chablis style Chardonnay, we blocked malolactic fermentation and aged the wine sur lies for 11 months in neutral French oak barrels. The result is a crisp, clean and mineral driven Chardonnay with a strong acid backbone and sleek mouthfeel with fresh aromas of asian pear and white flowers.
