Sonoma-Cutrer Chardonnay

SKU: ZZSONO0002
$27.49Price
This wine is a classic, elegantly structured Chardonnay. Grapes were harvested starting in the early mornings and then cooled down to 50-55F to preserve the fruit's fresh flavours and natural acidity. After hand sorting, the grapes were whole-cluster pressed to avoid bitter tannins from the skins and grape seeds. The cool, golden-green, free-run juice was then settled naturally in tanks for a few days before heading to French oak barrels and stainless steel for fermentation. The wine was then aged sur-lies in French oak. Barrels were a mixture of new and 1 year old through neutral oak.

  • TASTING NOTES

    On the nose, you will detect loads of nectarine, stone fruit, white peach, melon and oak spice accented with hints of vanilla, toasted nuts, a touch of butterscotch and light caramel with a subtle clove spice undertone. This wine has the distinctive Sonoma-Cutrer balance between elegance and richness for a medium-bodied, mouth-filling wine. The creamy texture of this wine offers flavours of ripe pear and peach that is balanced with vibrant acidity. There is a lot of finesse to the long, silky finish highlighted with barrel spice notes.
