The French Creek Vineyard has 40 year old plantings of Wente clone Chardonnay. The wine is fermented and aged in a combination of neutral French oak barrels and concrete tanks for 11 months. It remains on the original lees the entire time to increase mouthfeel and richness· 👁 Medium lemon color· 👃 Medium intensity on the nose. Aromas of Floral, acacia, citrus, lemon, asian pear, melon, cantaloupe, lees, yogurt, and cream· 👄 The wine is dry, medium acidity, medium+ alcohol, and full body. A medium+ length finish of lemon and cream· 🔔 An excellent example of New World Chardonnay - ipe, concentrated, and full bodied. The richness from the lees aging is wonderful. This old vine fruit really shows through without any oak makeup covering up the great flavors. Very good wine and a steal for $28. Well done!
