DeLoach Vineyards OFS Chardonnay 2017
This lovely Chardonnay opens with floral aromas of mandarin blossoms, a touch of lemon zest and a hint of green apple. Soft flavours of vanilla and crème brûlée greet the palate with notes of nutmeg touch of oak. This medium bodied Chardonnay has well balanced acidity and structure, leaving a long and lingering finish.
At DeLoach Vineyards the team strives to produce distinctive wines that highlight unique terroirs in a socially and environmentally responsible way, practicing sustainable viticulture and minimally intrusive winemaking techniques.
The grapes were whole-cluster pressed to stainless steel tanks for overnight settling. The juice was then racked to barrels for fermentation by native yeasts and malolactic conversion proceeded naturally during aging, while the lees-stirring contributed to enhanced mouthfeel. After being aged for 15 months in 14% new French oak, barrels were hand-selected to assemble the final blend before being bottled.
AWARDS & ACCOLADES

This “Our Finest Selection” white shows a brightness of apple blossom and wet stone within its floral, mineral-laden nose, building to a full-bodied concentration of rich baked apple, nutmeg and clove. The oak is supportive and generous.
