2019 Indindoli Chardonnay
Stressed Vines’ 2019 Indindoli Chardonnay was born from grapes harvested from the renowned Indindoli Vineyards in the heart of the Sonoma Coast. A perfectly balanced Chardonnay inspired from the best in Burgundy and California. This is a crisp, light-bodied wine defined by sharp acid and full fruit balanced by a light oak texture, with aromas of lemon verbena, white peach, white flowers, bay leaf, toast, butterscotch, all coupled with a creamy lemon curd palate which can be enjoyed now or after a couple of years of cellaring.
The single vineyard grapes are carefully hand harvested overnight and immediately pressed whole-cluster, settled in tank and then fermented in barrel with native yeast. Following a native malolactic fermentation, the wine ages in French oak (25% new) for 10 months on the lees and is stirred weekly before finally being placed in bottle un fined and unfiltered.
