According to the description, this wine is oaked. Which is it, oaked or unoaked?

Hi John, this is definitely the unoaked Chardonnay that is in stock. However, the description was taken from the winery's website which makes it very odd that it mentions that it has oak notes. Will look into it asap.

Notes on the Lincourt Unoaked Chardonnay Santa Rita Hills 750ML 2010

Wine Review There are many sources of tribute and inspiration for Lincourt. First there is the name of the winery, a fusion of Lindsay and Courtney, owner Bill Foley’s daughters. Then there are the small-lot bottlings of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that bear the names of the women who have influenced and shaped Bill Foley’s life including his wife, mother, grandmother and aunt. Finally, there are the two estate vineyards located within the Sta. Rita Hills region of Santa Barbara County. This area was largely unknown when the winery was founded in 1996, but today it is one of the most coveted, cool-climate AVAs in all of California.

Technical Notes At harvest, the fruit is hand picked and whole-cluster pressed. The fresh must is immediately cooled and transferred to sixty-gallon French oak barrels for fermentation. Barrels are predominately of Vosges and Alliers forest origin and are purchased from several Burgundian cooperage firms. Forty to fifty percent of the cooperage used for Lincourt’s Chardonnay is new oak in each vintage. Once fermentation in complete, the wine is allowed to clarify and settle in the barrel. It remains in barrel from January through June during which time the wine is stirred weekly to enhance development of flavor and complexity. Malolactic fermentation is completed at this time and the wine is further aged and stirred until August. At the end of August final evaluation of each individual lot takes place and the decision of the final blend is determined and assembled. The wine is bottled in early September. Sugar at harvest: 23.8 - 24.4 Alcohol: 14% TA: .80 pH: 3.22
