The nose of this wine exhibits aromas of stone fruit; especially white peach, fig, butterscotch, and toasted spices. Broad, rich and elegant the fruit glides across the palate with complex flavors that mirror the aromatics.

Description

Vineyards

All the fruit was harvested exclusively from our Estate vineyard on Trinity Ranch straddling the Sonoma/Napa county line high in the Mayacamas Mountains, now called Moon Mountain District. This vineyard has been Certified Organic since 2012. The elevation of this site keeps the vines cool and promotes a longer ripening period to allow full flavor development while retaining acidity. Yielding only three ton per acre the fruit is consistently ripe and concentrated.

Winemaking Techniques

Classic Burgundian techniques are employed at Petroni Vineyards when making Chardonnay. We aim to achieve the perfect balance between fruit, oak and acidity that keeps the fresh vibrancy intact with rich fruit and complexity of flavors. We achieve this by whole bunch pressing, full barrel fermentation with native and selected yeasts, the judicious use of 30% new tight French oak and lees stirring. As usual for us no Malo-Lactic fermentation was used for this wine.
