Hendry Ranch Barrel Fermented Chardonnay

This wine is a blend from our Block 9 (KD selection), Block 19 (Dijon 96 clone), Block 20 (Dijon 95 clone), and Block 21 (Old Wente selection). In 2011, median budbreak in the chardonnay blocks was March 22nd through 29th, median bloom May 31st - June 5, veraison August 7-10 and harvest was September 20th - 26th. Whole-cluster pressed, barrel fermented sur lie and aged in 33% new French oak barrels for 11 months. It was not allowed to go through malolactic fermentation, important for retaining its food-friendly malic acidity.
Soft aromas of golden apple, spicy oak and creamy lees. Silky on the palate, full and fruity, finishing with golden and green apple acidity. One-third new French barrels contribute underlying spice characteristic
s. Long lasting finish. We love it with Manchego cheese or any aged sheep or cow’s milk cheese, also delicious with Dungeness crab cakes, chicken or salmon.
