The grapes for the Notable: 2015 California chardonnay were grown in select California vineyards where warm, sunny days are followed by cool nights—perfect conditions for producing rich, full-bodied chardonnay. The fruit for the 2015 chardonnay was fermented sur lie with French oak to encourage maximum flavor development. The wine also underwent malolactic fermentation to soften its acidity and enhance the smooth mouthfeel. The wine was aged for nine months with French oak (75% new), imparting the toasty vanilla notes. The wine opens with stone fruit and a hint of vanilla on the nose. The wine has a hint of sweetness (residual sugar is 6g/L ), with pleasing toasted vanilla oak on the palate and hints of clove spice. The wine has balanced acidity leading to a cream soda mouthfeel and finish. Will pair well with French onion soup and roasted cod.
