“Three separate fermentations take place to achieve the layers of complexity and flavor found in our Chardonnay. We use Stainless Steel, Concrete Eggs and New French Oak barrels to ferment the grapes in. The wine picks up its brilliant lines of acidity from spending time in stainless steel. Our 500 gallon Concrete Eggs add minerality characteristics as well as help to micro-oxygenate the wine which gives it its rich lush palate weight. Finally, we pop the tops off our French oak barrels and whole cluster ferment the grapes under the watchful eye of our cellar team. This is where we get that beautiful golden color and those amazing butterscotch aromatics ” – from the Winery Vineyard: The Corotto Vineyard . Varietal: 100% Chardonnay.
