Size: 750.00ml
The 2017 vintage progressed nicely, until fires (starting on October 8th) disrupted the harvest. Smoke from those fires impacted red grapes that had not yet been harvested. White grapes were not impacted by the late season smoke because they are processed in a way that minimizes skin contact with juice (gentle whole cluster pressing). As with other Frostwatch Chardonnays, this wine is a blend of two different clonal selections from our vineyard. Clone 4 contributes a full mouthfeel with loads of red apple fruit, while fruit from the Platt-Wente Block contributes vibrant citrus notes and a touch of minerality. This wine continues to improve with additional bottle aging and still has yet to reach its full potential. The wine pairs well with a variety of foods, however it is rich and complex enough to drink beautifully on its own.
