2016 LA ESTANCIA CHARDONNAY

VARIETAL: 100% Chardonnay

VINEYARDS: La Estancia Vineyard

LOCATION: Santa Lucia Highlands

ALCOHOL: 13%
TOTAL PRODUCTION: 251 Cases

 

In the cellar we used only native yeast fermentation.  The Chardonnay was fermented in 1-2 year Austrian Oak barrels to allow the wine to breath and gain texture, then aged in said barrels for 16 months.  SO2 was only used once about a month prior to bottling to help the wine retain a sense of freshness and acidity.  The wine did go through partial malolactic fermentation.
