2021 Emblem Chardonnay
Low intervention winemaking to capture the nuance of the vineyard and to preserve the vibrant acidity in the wine. Whole clusters brought into the stainless-steel tanks to extract flavor and free-run juice; gently pressed after 24 hours, yeast added, and then moved into barrels for fermentation. The wine is aged 7 months in French Oak (10% new) without stirring of the lees or malolactic fermentation. Lightly fined and filtered.
