2006 Chardonnay Reserve
from Fallbrook Winery
AmericanWinery.com is pleased to provide you with Winery-Direct information.
A wonderful blend of rich fruit and oak flavors balanced by a note of crisp acidity, reminiscent in style to white Burgundy. Partial malolactic fermentation provides a rich mouth feel.
- 100% Chardonnay
Hand picked. Early morning harvest of October 8, 2005. Brix: 24.5°. Acid: 0.7 grams/100ml. Warm, sunny days and cool ocean nights during Central Coast harvest season led to particularly mature, balanced fruit. Processed in small batches and pressed in a Willmes bladder press.
50% barrel fermented, 50% stainless steel fermentation. 40% aged 12 months in French and American oak. Later blended with un-oaked wine, allowing for a full-bodied fruit forward Chardonnay with a crisp finish.
