2017 Chamisal Vineyards Santa Rita Hills Chardonnay
This bright wine exhibits focused characteristics with aromas of stone fruit, ripe pear and jasmine. The entry is fruit driven with hints of toasted oak, Fuji apple and white peach, giving an element of purity to the mid-palate. Finishing clean with fresh minerality and broad texture, the wine is a beautiful example of Santa Rita Hills Chardonnay.
Our 2017 Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay was vinified using traditional Burgundian winemaking techniques. This includes whole cluster pressing, barrel fermentations, batonnage and extended elevage techniques. We utilize press cuts to fine-tune quality and vinify in many small lots, allowing to assemble our Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay with a focus on quality that’s true to the appellation.
