The Terraces Napa Valley Chardonnay 2017
Picked at peak ripeness to decrease acidity, then slightly crushed and left on their skins while also on dry ice, then fermented at low temp to avoid malolactic fermentation, and left to age in French oak. Quite a ride. What results is an inviting Chardonnay full of tropical fruit, crispy asian pear & yellow apple without a big acidic bite.
