Product description
The grapes for the La Storia Chardonnay were sourced from an established Russian River vineyard with small berries and clusters providing a great concentration of aromas and flavours. The grapes were hand-picked early in the morning at the lowest temperature possible. They pressed the fruit directly without destemming for preserving more of the delicate aromas. The entire lot was barrel fermented using three different types of yeast with partial malolactic fermentation to preserve the fruit expression of the grapes and to keep more of the natural acidity and freshness. The lees on the bottom of the barrels were stirred twice per month for increased mouthfeel and viscosity. This Chardonnay has the aromas of tropical fruits, ripe apples, peaches, and apricots. Further aeration reveals deeper aromas of toast with a touch of caramel and ripe Meyer lemons meringue and a bit of minerality. The mouthfeel is generous and rich, with tamed acidity and a long and round finish. Cheers!
