Amourette Chardonnay 2019

Amourette Chardonnay 2019

There is one glorious white grape here - Chardonnay from our Estate Vineyard.

Tasting Notes

An example of single-varietal (Chardonnay Clone 76) and a single, perfect vineyard, grown exclusively for low yield, high quality fruit.

Amourette could be considered the purest expression of the Chardonnay grape with its incredible nose, exotic fruit flavors, spice and butterscotch in a balanced wine with just enough acidity and body to evoke power, while not erring on the side of being too heavy.

Production Notes

Only 170 cases produced.

Winemaker Notes

Following good winter rainfall and a cool spring, the 2019 summer growing season was near-perfect. Fortunately, the rain came when the flowers budded minimizing any shatter issues. The cool spring slowed down some of the fruit growth allowing the grapes time to develop and ripen, then the hotter August temperatures provided the right amount of stress at the right time for flavor development.

Cooperage Notes

French oak for 12 months - 33% new, 33% one use, balance neutral.
