2018 Vanderpump Chardonnay Sonoma Coast Estate Grown...$19.99
Our Estate Grown Chardonnay is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes from our stunning vineyards of the Sonoma Coast AVA. Aged in 100% French Oak for 11 months, this wine has a brilliant straw color, with a nose of citrus, pear, and crisp apple. These fruits are lined with floral notes and hints of brioche and toast.
The fruit was rigorously hand sorted and gently whole-cluster pressed. The juice was settled and either put straight to barrel or left in tank. Fermentation temperatures were in the 70-degree range followed by lees stirring for 4 months in barrel. Mostly native yeast and malolactic fermentations with only a few lots fermented using cultured Burgundy isolates. Aged in 100% French Oak for 11 months
