2013 Barrel Fermented Chardonnay

“A retro, 70's California style Chardonnay that has a silky texture with Yellow Apple fruit and good acidity, but not overdone with oak. ”

– Mark Lyon, Winemaker

The 2013 Chardonnay was barrel fermented, with some minimal lees stirring to create richness and complexity. Only a partial secondary malolactic fermentation was allowed to preserve the crisp acidity. The intent was to make a more understated Chardonnay that reflects the clone (Robert Young), soils (clay loam), and region (Alexander Valley).
