The 2016 Grande Reserve Chardonnay is a selection from their best plot of white grapes from ten-year-old vines. It fermented partly in stainless steel vats and partly in oak barrels with indigenous yeasts at low temperature. It went through malolactic in barrel, where it matured with the fine lees for 12 months. It has a meaty and savory profile, with generous oak and spice, especially on the palate. It has good balance and moderate acidity. 5,000 bottles were filled in March 2017.

Sliced-apple, lemon and mineral aromas follow through to a medium body, tangy fruit and a toasted-oak, vanilla and cooked-apple aftertaste. Drink now.

This features suave creaminess to the ripe peach, pear and apple flavors. Floral notes linger on the minerally finish.
