2020 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
Stressed Vines’ 2020 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay was harvested from the Micro-Climate hills of Annapolis on the Sonoma Coast. A Chardonnay inspired from the best in Burgundy and California. This is a perfectly balanced, light-bodied wine, defined by light acid and full fruit combined with a light oak texture, with aromas of lemon verbena, white peach, Crème brûlée, toast, butterscotch, 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. Following a full 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 unfined and filtered.
