McBride Sisters Chardonnay 2016
Quince, ripe Granny Smith apple and notes of crisp Pear sit atop a nose loaded with complex fruit notes encompassing a variety of citrus - mandarin orange and tangerine. White flower and face-powder round out a nose that just hints at the presence of fine French oak while continuing to focus on intriguing fruit notes. In the mouth, the wine incredibly well balanced, filling the mouth with volume while finishing with an acidity that begs for another sip. Upon receipt, Chardonnay clusters were pressed lightly via bladder press directly to settling tank. 24 hours later, the juice is racked to tank or barrel where fermentation commences. For added depth and complexity, 50% of the wine was barrel fermented to create classic Chardonnay texture very subtle oak notes. To conserve fresh, crisp, fruit notes, the balance of the wine (50%) was fermented in stainless steel. To further develop the balance between appealing texture and crisp mouthfeel, only 75% of the wine was put though Malolactic fermentation. Following 8 months of aging, the wine is blended before being filtered and bottled.
