Description

This Los Alamos Vineyard Chardonnay brings me back to the classic Chardonnays from this vineyard. The nose and the palate show generous amounts of citrus, with lemon custard being the most apparent. The palate is very rich and intense with the characteristic briny quality that we typically expect from Los Alamos. The richness of this wine is balanced by its mouthwatering acidity and a touch of new oak. Over all this is one of our most classic Los Alamos Chardonnays.

These grapes were hand harvested early in the morning at 22.9 brix. They were pressed and directly put into French oak barrels (10% new) to ferment. The wine stayed there for 14 months on its lees and was then racked and lightly fined before being bottled unfiltered in March 2019.
