Chardonnay
"Estate"

Hook & Ladder Winery

TASTING NOTES: Our pale straw colored Chardonnay leads off with a rich bouquet of apple-butter, honey suckle, lime blossom and notes of lemon candy, which is closely followed by a full mouth of golden delicious apple, citrus, and pear flavors. Hints of lemon and lime compliment the long toasted butter finish. TECHNICAL NOTES: Our Chardonnay is crushed and de-stemming immediately to press, then the juice is fermented in French oak barrels. While in barrel, the wine goes through a malolactic fermentation that naturally creates a light buttery flavor and smooth mouth feel. While on its lees the wine is hand stirred in barrel once a month, and topped twice a month for eight months. This process develops and additional complexity of flavors and aromas.
