2016 Estate Bottled Chardonnay

Made with 100% Estate Fruit from our Beamsville Bench Vineyard. This Chardonnay is medium gold in colour with integrated aromas of green apple, citrus fruit and warm spices. Rich on the palate with a creamy mouthfeel and fresh, lively acididty on the finish. 

Selected from grapes in our estate vineyard on the Beamsville Bench, gently pressed and cold settled in stainless steel for a short period before being transferred into a mixture of older and new French Oak barrels. Barrel-fermented at warm temperatures using both commercial and “wild” yeast. Approximately two thirds of the barrels were allowed to go through malolactic fermentation. The individual barrels selected were combined after approximately nine months in barrel, filtered and bottled.
