Product Description

The folks at Lava Cap are dedicated to crafting a Chardonnay that articulates the depth and character of this legendary wine grape. They strive to produce a lush and compelling Chardonnay with an authentic sense of the El Dorado terroir. The 2017 vintage continues to consistently elevate Lava Cap¬ís Chardonnay. Zesty lemon and apple blossom aroma lead into pleasant apple and pear flavors. Vanilla notes complement a lightly toasted pie crust finish. The vineyards are planted at varying elevations and aspects to capture an array of flavors and complexities. The wine ferments in 100% French oak barrels. During fermentation the wine is stirred on the lees in a labor intensive practice referred to as Battonage, resulting in the slight biscuity finish. The 2017 Chardonnay fruit flavors are bolstered by pleasant acidity and a touch of oak on the finish. The name ‘Lava Cap’ reflects the unique topography of the site.
