2017 Stoller Reserve Chardonnay
Our Reserve Chardonnay is a blend of some of our oldest Dijon vines on the property, planted between 1995 and 2000. Whole cluster pressed to mitigate phenolics, this wine was barrel fermented with native yeast. With only 50% malolactic conversion, our Reserve Chardonnay expresses aromatics of lemon curd, flint, white blossom, and wet stone. The palate meets the nose with a citrus vibrancy, revealing a luxurious mouthfeel due to extended lees contact and balanced use of oak.
