2019 Chardonnay Bottle Shot

Chardonnay 2019This product is from the Organically Farmed Collection

Our organic fruit offers the characteristic flavors of green apples, pears, and citrus to our chardonnay. We ferment 70% of the juice in a combination of French and American oak, which is allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation to create a rich, creamy wine with just a touch of new oak spice. The remaining 30% is fermented in stainless steel to preserve the crisp fresh fruit flavors. We age most of the wine using previously-used or neutral oak in order for these fresh fruit characteristics to shine through. New oak was used for just 15% of the wine to give this chardonnay a nice vanilla note.

An initial impression of rich, buttery cream quickly turns to aromas of honey and lightly toasted almonds, followed by tropical aromas of pineapple, citrusy lemon and crème brulee. The wine is refreshing on the palate, with a minerality that is both bright and clean, drawing you into a vibrant tartness and lemon zest that is absolutely, positively Bonterra Chardonnay, vintage after vintage.

“Winemaker Jeff Cichocki crafts an especially aromatic white here: Jazzy perfume of jasmine and sugar-dusted apples and almond shortbread. While 70% of the juice is fermented in a combination of French and American oak, 30% is fermented in stainless steel. The palate’s crispness, an initial creaminess and a focused citrus core, delivers freshness. It finishes with ripe pineapple that allows the acidity to just about nip the tongue – great for food partnering. 90 PTs”

“Ripe fruit meets butter and spice in this medium-bodied, smooth and integrated wine. It opens with Bosc pear and golden apple aromas, melding with vanilla and marzipan notes, its richness of flavor nicely buoyed up by acidity.”
