Chardonnay proprietor's single vineyard grapes, from ungrafted selected clones of pre-phylloxera French rootstock. Harvest took place on March 8th, 2018.
Hand-picked chardonnay grapes are carried to the winery immediately after cutting, and carefully selected before winemaking. Grapes are destemmed, pressed and cooled at 8°C. Wine is decanted for 24 hours at 8°C prior to fermentation. Fermentation with natural yeasts in stainless steel tanks between 13 and 17°C for 25 days. No stabilization process, no filtration, no added sulfites. Aged in French oak barrels for 15 months.
The appearance of this natural wine is pale yellow and is slightly cloudy, due to its lack of processing. On the nose, strong aromas of banana, apple and pear blend with toasted brioche. In the mouth, it is full-bodied and rich, with a creamy refreshing and fruity acidity.
