The grapes for the 2009 Late Harvest Chardonnay come exclusively from the Manchester Ridge vineyard of Mendocino County. This luscious, deeply hued golden elixir opens with captivating aromas of ripe apricot, jasmine blossoms, golden apple and sultanas. Full-bodied with balanced acidity, flavors of pear, peach and creamed honey with a dollop of vanilla lengthen into a long, smooth finish. Careful tending of the vineyard provided optimal growing conditions for the Chardonnay grape. However, the rare conditions of 2009 allowed botrytis cinerea or "Noble Rot" to take hold on the grape skins, and you can reap the rewards! To balance sweetness with natural acidity, grape lots were selected in the vineyard and then hand sorted at the winery. The grapes underwent a very slow fermentation over six weeks at low temperature. Upon completion of fermentation, the wine was moved into oak barrels for 12 months, and then placed in stainless steel tanks until bottling without filtration in late 2012."
