 Product Description

As exotic as an oriental courtesan with gleaming legs of fine antique gold; a slow dancer wearing an enormous sun-struck citrine bling; ripe braised pears dotted with candied apricot, marzipan & tropical pineapple, grapefruit zest, & just a hint of bourbon dusted with nutmeg, & surely you can find a magnolia petal floating in the nether reaches of your mind. Why such intense golden tone, & whence the provocative scent? Because Chardonnay grapes fully exposed to the sun from birth at flowering have golden skins infused with an incredible array of scents & flavors, & because all of our ÒwhiteÓ wines, including this Chardonnay, are totally fermented on their skins just like a classic red wine. This process captures all of the skinÕs color, scent & flavors. And whatÕs the difference? Chardonnay grapes are normally dumped whole cluster into the wine press, with clear juice being quickly extracted from the berries, upon which the glorious golden skins with their exotic flavors & scents are simply dumped onto the compost heap. A crime! The books say that one must never ferment white grapes on the skins. Rubbish. The books also say that Chardonnay should never be barrel-aged more than 4 or 5 months. Double rubbish! Bottled in 2011, this venerable wine spent an average of 5_ years cradled in oak & is composed of 47.9% Chardonnay from the 2005 vintage & 52.1% from the 2006 vintage.
