Solitude Chard Carneros 2010

Sangiacomo Family Vineyards Carneros
Retail Price: $35.00
The 2010 growing season in the Carneros offered near-perfect conditions for growing high quality Chardonnay. Weather was fairly mild during the growing season, with few heat spikes The cool fall pushed harvest back to mid-October thus allowing for ample hang time for development of full fruit flavors. This is always desirable for optimal aromas, flavors and balance of sugar with natural fruit acidity. The wine is yellow straw in color. It possesses appealing aromas of vanilla crème, ripe apple and toasty new oak. The wine is nicely balanced and has a pleasing bouquet with an elegant and subtle long-flavored finish. Winemaking protocol includes full barrel fermentation, weekly stirring and secondary malo-lactic fermentation to increase complexity and richness
