Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our 2015 Cheval Sauvage Chardonnay offers an inviting blend of aromas, including pineapple, lemon zest, crème brûlée, coconut, and spice with floral and mineral notes. The flavors are a delicious balance of freshness and creaminess, with vanilla, spiced green apple, and lemon. 100% Chardonnay
Vineyard Notes
The warm 2015 winter brought early bud break. A cold May lead to weak fruit set and a lighter crop relative to previous years. The summer allowed for ample ripening time, producing a variety of aromas and flavors. The light crop lead to an early harvest, but stellar quality.
Winemaker Notes
All of the vineyard blocks were hand harvested separately in September, and delivered to the winery at 7:30 in the morning. Grape clusters are delivered directly to the press. Allowed to cool and settle for 24 hours, then racked, the chardonnay juice was inoculated and barreled down to ferment in barrel. Upon completion of alcoholic fermentation, the lees are stirred every two weeks until March. The wines do not go through Malolactic fermentation.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with smoked Gouda, Brie and Gruyere cheese, pork chops with apple compote, pumpkin risotto or fried chicken.
