                                  Noiret

Blend:
95% Noiret
5% Chardonel

Production Notes:
100% whole cluster fermentation provides a high density of both color and tannin.  A small amount of Chardonel was added to stabilize color.  This technique is often done in Australia where Viognier is added during fermentation of Shiraz for the same reason.

Aroma:
Dark berry (raspberry and blackberry), black pepper, bell pepper

Taste:
Full-bodied, moderately high tannin which creates a nice mouthfeel and long finish.

 

2013 Chardonnay

2013 Chardonnay

Production Notes:
This wine was aged in both stainless steel and oak barrel. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged sur lie for one year following fermentation, both processes which help shape the rich mouthfeel of the wine. The wine has a very complex aroma and flavor with notes ranging from apple and honey to butter and almond.
