Grapes are picked at lower sugar levels to ensure that our wine has lower alcohol content. The fruit is pressed into stainless steel tanks for primary fermentation and then secondary fermentation using the Charmat method. Adding a small amount of all-natural blueberry extract offers the gentle perfume and tender flavors.
Chardonnay is a green-skinned grape variety used in the production of white wine. The Chardonnay grape itself is neutral, with many of the flavors commonly associated with the wine being derived from such influences as terroir and oak. It is vinified in many different styles, from the lean, crisply mineral wines of Chablis, France, to New World wines with oak and tropical fruit flavors. In cool climates, Chardonnay wine tends to be medium to light body with noticeable acidity and flavors of green plum, apple, and pear. In warmer locations, the flavors become more citrus, peach, and melon, while in very warm locations, more fig and tropical fruit notes such as banana and mango come out. Wines that have gone through malolactic fermentation tend to have softer acidity and fruit flavors with buttery mouthfeel and hazelnut notes.
Chardonnay is an amazing food wine. Pair with:
- Beef stew
- Aged gouda
