dry + citrus + bread + subtle almond + toasted oak
The Heritage Chardonnay is a highly palatable wine endowed with a bouquet of beautiful citrus with accents of light melon, bread, and light oak. On the palate, a citrus flavor leads but is followed immediately by nicely integrated notes of bread, subtle almond, a soft minerality, and toasted oak. A lightly creamy texture cut with lively acidity lends a complexity to this dynamic wine normally found in far more expensive wines. Made in a French winemaking style, three types of barrel-maturation were utilized to give the wine a rounder, buttery mouthfeel; first undergoing regular fermentation, followed by sur lie aging, and finally malolactic fermentation.
