Pale golden color with green tints. Elegant and powerful on the nose with hints of vanilla, hazelnut and toast. Round and full on the palate with aromas of white flowers and vanilla.
Wine Maker Notes
Vineyards: To craft the Fat bastard Chardonnay, grapes are sourced from all over the Languedoc-Rousillon, from the banks of the Rhone in the east to Carcassonne in the west, and from the foothills of the Massif Central in the north to the Mediterranean coast in the south. These different origins give the wine the balanced fruit flavor and acidity that have made it a consumer favorite.
Grapes picked at optimum ripeness. Destemming and crushing on arrival at the winery. Enzymes are then added and the must is then refrigerated for 24-48 hours. The clear juice is then drawn off and fermentation is started with the addition of selected yeasts. Part of the wine is put into barrel for the fermentation process. Temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation is completed and the malolactic fermentation is blocked. Wine is raised in barrel & tank.
Ideal as an accompaniment to a variety of cheeses, seafood, poultry and cream sauce pastas.
