Winemaking Notes: Each terroir is vinified separately. The grapes are destemmed before a short skin contact or direct pressing. The fermentation temperature is maintained between 15°C to 18°C (59° F to 64°F) to enhance fruit flavors. The wines are blended after fermentation and then aged in stainless steel vats. The Montrose Chardonnay is bottled during winter and spring.
Tasting Notes: In the glass, this Chardonnay has a lovely yellow color with green glints. The vibrant nose shows citrus and white peach. Elegance combined with roundness and freshness defines the palate. Drink young, chilled and often. Pair the Montrose Chardonnay with salmon, white meat, and hard cheeses.
