2018 Powers Chardonnay


Winemaker's Notes

With 2018 being a warmer vintage with crisp, cool nights, the Chardonnay grapes came in with ripe fruit characteristics alongside a nice backbone of acidity in mid-September to mid-November harvest dates.  Three components were fermented in stainless steel upright fermenters with PDM yeast with 796 used on the Goose Ridge Chardonnay . To retain the freshness in this Chardonnay, as is typical of our house style, we did not use any oak or send the wine though malolactic fermentation.
