2008 Elephant Hill Chardonnay
Our 2008 Chardonnay typifies the style of Chardonnay we aim to produce from our coastal vineyard. Handpicked fruit of outstanding quality and optimal flavor ripeness was whole-bunch pressed to 228L Burgundian oak, 50% new. No cultured yeast was added; rather an uninoculated fermentation using the yeast strains indigenous to our vineyard was allowed. Following the alcoholic fermentation the wine remained in barrel, on lees, for 10 months. The wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation.
The 2008 Chardonnay is intense and concentrated. Aromas of pink grapefruit, citrus blossom and nectarine complement the sharply focused palate of spicy Meyer lemon, green apple and hazelnut.
A 10% discount is offered on all case purchases (12 bottles), this saving will be applied once 12+ bottles have been added to the shopping cart.
