2014 Calyptra Chardonnay

100% Chardonnay

Stillwater Creek Vineyard | 94 Cases Produced | 14.5% Alcohol

Hand-picked in the cool early morning, the whole-clusters were sorted and then gently tumbled in the press cylinder to macerate on skins for 2 hours. Pressed to tank for settling overnight at 55 degrees. The lightly settled juice was then racked directly into 100% new French oak puncheon and monitored daily. Native yeast fermented, the barrels were stirred only as needed to encourage the process. In July, native malolactic fermentation completed, and the barrels were racked to tank for comingling and then returned to the original barrels with light lees. After an extended 23 months of barrel age, the wine was racked once more to stainless for 5 months and finished with a light filtration. One year in bottle before release.

Tasting notes

This Chardonnay is rich, expressive and all about texture. Forward and full in the mouth, there are hints of mineral salinity lingering behind heady aromas of white peach, lemon oil & beeswax with toasted hazelnuts, praline and savory winter spice throughout. An open, textural and layered entry is complimented by balanced acidity and a lengthy, dry finish.
