2016 Gran Moraine Vineyard Chardonnay
For this vintage, we harvested exclusively the Dijon Clone 76. The 2016 Gran Moraine Chardonnay provides ripe golden apple and Asian pear fruit. With just 17% new oak influence and modest lees stirring employed, this wine has a round texture and mouthfeel, yet is clean and crisp. Malolactic fermentation contributed balanced acidity.
