2019 Piano Piano Chardonnay
A bright, crystalline lemon in the glass, this second edition of our over-vintaged Chardonnay is here to prove what extra patience and time in barrel can do for this noble grape. For this reserve wine, we start by selecting four neutral oak barrels of Trovato Vineyard Chardonnay and then allow them to age longer than our traditional Chardonnay: 18 months instead of 10. The result is a stunningly complex wine that still maintains plenty of vibrancy. The nose offers an alluring bouquet of lime flower, white peach, and crisp asian pear, followed by some more mature aromas of honeysuckle, granite, and custard. The palate is equally complex - delivering walnut, honey, and lemon tart. There’s a lasting and fresh lemon-lime finish, supported by captivating acidity. We would love to see our Piano Piano alongside a crab linguine with braised fennel and lemon, or perhaps a lobster mushroom risotto - the perfect Chardonnay to ease you into the upcoming cooler months.
