Ask a question about this product

The 1997 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard has undercurrents of citrus and spice. Flavors are also unveiled with delightful mineral notes well integrated with caramel, vanilla, butter, smoke, and toast. It is complex, rich and medium bodied, with fruit that is extremely well balanced. It has well defined depth, silky texture, balanced acidity and a clean crisp hazelnut finish. Fermentation Fermentation consisted of initial French Oak Barrel fermentation and a secondary 100% Malo-Lactic fermentation in which the harsher Malic Acid is converted to the softer Lactic Acid. Barrel Age The Chardonnay was aged in 100% French Oak from the Allier, Never and Troncais Forest, in France, for eleven (11) months. The wine was further aged for an additional 18 months in the bottle. Aging in the bottle allows the wine to rest and round out its natural fruit flavor and aromatic attributes.
