2006 Stratton Lummis, Chardonnay Los Carneros
Stratton Lummis er navnet som folkene bag vores andet mærke Row Eleven har valgt til at producere dejlig un-oaked Chardonnay fra
Carneros der er helt perfekt til dyrkning af Chardonnay.
Der er ikke så meget andet at sige, at det er en frisk, træ-fri og meget elegant Chardonnay. Læskende og lækker....
The grapes are whole cluster crushed directly to press. The juice is then fermented completely dry in a stainless steel fermenter. Fermentation is between 55F to 70F and lasts for a period of eight weeks. After fermentation, the wine remains on its initial fermentation lees for approximately 60 days. The wine is then racked and inocculated with malo-lactic bacteria. Because of the temperature of the wine, the malo-lactic fermentation takes almost six months. The remaining lees are stirred continually. The wine is chilled to 40F where it rests until bottling.
Tasting notes: A light color is matched by zesty natural acidity which balances the richness and depth this wine has on the finish. Because NO OAK is used in aging, the delicate aromas of pears, lemons and peaches shine through. This wine is the perfect marriage of the best of Chablis and Carneros.
