Winemaking Notes: The Sean Minor Sonoma Chardonnay was 100% whole-cluster pressed. The juice was settled for 24 hours before being racked into small French oak barrels, of which 20% were new barrels. Once primary fermentation was completed, natural malolactic fermentation progressed with 50% of the lots until a perfect balance of acidity was achieved. The wine was then aged in French oak barrels for a total of 10 months before bottling.
Tasting Notes: This Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is a light golden straw hue and displays aromas of apple, pear, tropical citrus and pineapple with subtle notes of cardamom cinnamon and vanilla spice. On the entry, crisp vibrant flavors of guava, pear and green apple integrate well with a touch of minerality and a medium body mouth feel which evolve into a full and lengthy finish.
