    This Wine Is Rated:


    Tasting Notes:
    The wine features notes of pear, crème brûlée, peach, apricot, lime, almonds, and toffee. The palate shows a good mineral attack with a streak of wet stone, bright acidity, and excellent length and balance. The wine lingers with creaminess, pear and peach flavors on the finish.

    Production Notes:

    This Chardonnay, which continues the collaboration between Joseph Carr and winemaker Aaron Pott, was historically called “Dijon Clone.” Sourced from the cool-climate Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley AVAs, the wine undergoes barrel fermentation as well as sur lie aging in 10% new French oak, both of which contribute a creamy texture and complexity.

    Winemaker Notes:
    The grapes were picked at the peak of flavor ripeness in late August and were gently pressed using a membrane press. The wine was barrel-fermented and then aged sur lie for eight months in 10% new French oak. The lees were hand-stirred monthly to enhance the creamy finish created by barrel fermentation and to encourage 100% malolactic fermentation.

    Aging: 8 months in 10% new French oak
