Corley Family Napa Valley

2015 Estate Grown Chardonnay

2015 Estate Grown Chardonnay
Monticello Vineyards

This wine displays a pale golden tone with brilliant clarity. I find expressive aromas of golden apple, fig, and ripe pear that integrate nicely with richer aromas of light caramel, hints of truffle, and toasted vanillin oak. On the palate, the wine has a beam of bright acidity, encompassed by a full bodied creamy texture and a lingering finish.

Vineyard Notes
Our 2015 Chardonnay was harvested in 3 separate lots over 4 days from our Home Ranch estate vineyard. The fruit was hand-picked and cluster sorted prior to being whole cluster pressed. 2015 was a great growing season. The majority of the juice was fermented in stainless steel, with the remainder fermented in French oak barrels. We enjoy combining the two winemaking styles with our Chardonnay, as we find the characteristics of each fermentation complement each other very nicely. The tank fermentations tend to run cooler, resulting in a brighter Chardonnay. The barrel lots ferment a little warmer, and with the oak contact and increased surface contact with the yeast, they tend to have a fuller and richer expression on the palate.
Winemaker Notes
This wine will benefit from being served slightly chilled.
