In late September, when sugar levels and flavor development reached absolute perfection in the vineyards, we harvested the fruit for this Chardonnay. Grapes were gently harvested at night, to allow the citrus and tropical flavors to shine and to retain the fruit’s natural acidity. We cold-settled the juice and racked it just prior to fermentation. About half of the wine remained in stainless steel tanks to preserve the wine’s bright acidity and delicate aromas, while the remaining portion underwent a secondary malolactic fermentation before aging in French oak to add depth and complexity.
