Crafted from grapes grown primarily in Sonomas Russian River Valley. Chloe winemaker Georgetta Dane has highlighted the structure and depth of this fruit by using new and used oak as a secondary presence, rather than the focus, to showcase ripe, clean flavors of fresh citrus, apple, pear with notes of creamy butter and a hint of vanilla. The resulting wine is exceptionally well-balanced with sophisticated intensity, a creamy mid-palate and long finish. The opulent, rich flavors coaxed from the grapes with soft oak integration is achieved through a combination of stainless steel and oak fermentation. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged on oak, resulting in an elegant California Chardonnay with a silky finish.
A big, rich Chardonnay from California's desirable Central Coast, where the sun drenched grapes create full and elegantly-textured wines. Decadent layers of butter, cream, bright citrus and vanilla melt into a balance of oak and subtle spice. In other words: Sinful.
The McManis Family Vineyards Chardonnay is light golden straw in color. Bright fruit aromas of Pear, Melon and Peach are accompanied by a bouquet of Vanilla, Hazelnut, and a hint of buttered popcorn. The wine is rich, creamy and full of sweet Pear, Banana and toasty oak flavors.
This Chardonnay is brought up in just 28% new French oak, it has a vibrant freshness and purity, with lots of salty minerality in its mango, orange blossom, caramelized citrus all soaring from the glass. Fresh, lively and pure, with remarkable purity and elegance, it's going to keep for a decade as well.
