Here is another wine coming from our Trovato Vineyard in Yamhill to your glass. For the second edition of this wine, we decided to add another layer of complexity by fermenting and aging the wine in some premium quality new French oak barrels; as well as some older, neutral barrels. We also included the use of a unique new barrel made of 50% French oak staves and 50% acacia wood staves. The result will be obvious to those of you familiar to our previous Chardonnay releases.
Aromatically, the wine is bursting with aromas of toasted bread and vanilla, but also Asian pear and notes of lime peel. In the mouth, it displays a great minerality with an elegant and seamless structure.
