Ponzi Vineyards Chardonnay Reserve 2011 750ml

Ponzi Vineyards Chardonnay Reserve

VINTAGE 2011: The season started quite late and wet with budbreak finally revealing itself in early May. A heavier than normal crop was thinned down to handle the late season, but even into the last part of August there was not significant heat to convince us that everything would get ripe enough. We thinned again at veraison (color change) and headed into September with cool, wet weather. As we were about to lose all hope towards the beginning of October, the sun decided to shine! A beautiful Indian summer saved this “Miracle Vintage” and though we were picking into the middle of November, the fruit was ripe and sound. This vintage will be remembered as the latest on record to date. It resembles, in structure, fruit intensity and color, the beautiful 1999 vintage.

Tasting: "Our Chardonnay Reserve blends new Dijon Clones and old Chardonnay vines presenting a wine with lovely structure and depth. With aromas of apple, pineapple, roasted nuts, this wine is medium bodied with mineral characteristics and a bright finish, creating a elegant style." -Luisa Ponzi
