2016 Lorenzo Chardonnay

2016 Lorenzo Chardonnay
Russian River

750 ML - $50.00

THE VINTAGE
unseasonably cool, foggy mornings of August. Accelerated sugar
accumulation in the clusters resulted in La Follettes earliest pick date
ever at Lorenzo VineyardSeptember 6th. The high malic acid
content of the grapes at harvest resulted in an extended secondary
fermentation. The resulting wine is a very natural Chardonnay that
expresses the vintage and is bursting with minerality and acidity.

THE WINE
Enticing aromas of Golden Delicious Apple, piecrust and buttercream.
A voluptuous entry transitions to a fan of bright acidity. Exemplifying
the complexity of these old vines, the palate is layered with grapefruit,
seashell, acacia and a hint of barrel spice. A powerful expression of
Chardonnay, enlivened by a low pH and edgy acidity.
