We brought some buttery oak to this Chardonnay party. For our debut vintage of Newsprint Chardonnay we used 50 percent new French oak. While that might sound like a heavy barrel regiment, all the wood is boiled prior to constructing the barrel to create what are called “water-bent barrels.” By using water-bent barrels we’re softening the impact of potential “oaky-ness,” while still giving structure and weight to the wine. This Chardonnay features notes of gorgeous golden delicious apple and yellow plum. This vintage is very focused and sleek.
