An intense well structured wine, with depth, balance, and length. This Chardonnay is more true Burgundy style that has a floral, citrus, and mineral notes in the nose that will open up and show flavors of honeysuckle, apple, and pineapple with a hint of vanilla.
Composition: 100% Chardonnay (Old Wente Clone) originally a selection from Meursault. Grown in three small blocks including Mitch Cosentino's home vineyard which provided the budwood for the other two.
Winemaking: The wine was barrel fermented and aged in specially made French oak Burgundy barrels designed for winemaker Mitch, styled Chardonnays exclusively for 12 months, 40% new. There is no malolactic fermentation, so this wine retains its bright natural acidity and as a result will age for many years.
