Chardonnay

Reserve Whale Rock Vineyard 2020

Six Bot­tles

$150 Shipped ($130 Club)

This Reserve Chardon­nay is from our CCOF-Cer­ti­fied organ­ic Whale Rock Vine­yard that is nes­tled on the west side of the Paso Rob­les AVA that offers cool, ocean air influ­ences. Cool fer­ment­ed and aged in both French and Amer­i­can oak bar­rels, this Chardon­nay offers some oak sweet­ness with bal­anced, yet soft, fruit notes. This wine is always a treat with rich seafood and creamed deca­dent soups. Serve slight­ly chilled.

Wine­mak­ing Notes:
The grapes were whole clus­ter pressed to min­i­mize skin extrac­tion. The juice was clar­i­fied to reduce solids and allowed to cool fer­ment over a three-week peri­od. Ear­ly in the fer­men­ta­tion a por­tion was trans­ferred to small oak bar­rels where it con­tin­ued as a bar­rel fer­men­ta­tion. Both the tank por­tion and the bar­rel fer­ment por­tion were allowed to rest on yeast sed­i­ment (sur lie) for 7 months. At that time blend­ing of the two por­tions, in prepa­ra­tion for bot­tling, took place. A bal­anced blend of oak and fruit being the goal.
