2018 Willful Ribbon Ridge Chardonnay

Grapes from Stewart Vineyard in the Ribbon Ridge AVA were fermented in neutral French oak and stirred daily during fermentation to create texture and mouthfeel. Cool fermentation helped preserve the aromas. No malolactic fermentation to preserve the natural acidity of the wine. (60 cases produced)

"...poached pears and grilled peaches... the palate has a waxy, savory twist with fresh acidity delivering bright, fleshy resolve." (90pts Suckling Report)

I bought this wine at a Lucas cheese ship and lived it so much I ordered online twice. It’s bright cherry noted are eight up my alley without being sweet. Lovely balance of flavors.
