One of our most popular white wines, this Chablis-style Chardonnay is fermented in stainless steel drums as opposed to oak barrels, giving it a crisp, bright acidity, similar to what you would expect from a Sauvignon Blanc. Not your traditional Chardonnay, this delicious white wine is perfect for all seasons.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes:

This wine has a light straw color from its reduced state in tank compared to the wine done in barrel. On the nose it's slightly floral and reminiscent of apple blossoms with overtones of citrus. Yet subtle and crisp on the palate with hints of lemon and nectarine. The acidity is subtle and balanced by a minerality in the wine that reminds you of wet river rock. By making the wine in stainless steel it lacks the creaminess and buttery flavors often associated with barrel aged chardonnay making it the perfect choice for those long hot days in the District.
