The October Night Chardonnay is a fresh, youthful pale straw yellow color, with floral aromas of hyacinth and paperwhites, beeswax, tangerine, pineapple, lime zest, and vanilla. The winemaking techniques, used to enhance the spicy and exotic nature of this Chardonnay, included barrel fermentation in largely one-year-old French oak barrels, followed by malolactic fermentation with lees stirring. The result is a very attractive and complex bouquet with big flavors and weight with a soft, rich, and seamless texture.
Rich honeysuckle, marzipan and oak aromas meet bright lemongrass on the nose of this bottling, showing both the fresh and oxidative sides of the grape. Smoked chicken and brioche notes are prominent on the palate, leading to a tangy, botanical, juniper-laced finish.
