Shirtail Ranches Chardonnay is a hallmark representation of a coastally-influenced wine. We age this Chardonnay sur lie for approximately 6 months. Only 5% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation. The nose is inviting with kiwi, candied lemon peel and vanilla aromas leading to flavors of juicy ripe pear and golden delicious apple. This Chardonnay has a pleasing kiss of oak delivering flavors of toasted almond and nougat which add interest to its medium-body, and long finish.
