Flat Rock Cellars 2009 Chardonnay

Flat Rock Cellars 2009 Chardonnay

Big bold aromas of citrus, chalk dust and sweet oak blasts out of the glass. The palate has a lime-like acidity upping the intensity even further. As a complement to the acidity, the wine also has great texture and creaminess from the yeast stirring during its time in barrel.

Winemaker Notes: The 2009 Chardonnay is a blend of our two clones of Chardonnay, 76 and 95. The four different sites and soil types in which we grow these vines give the wine great complexity. The 2009 Chardonnay was hand harvested and hand sorted in early October, and following hand sorting of the fruit the grapes were either whole bunch pressed or de-stemmed. Following settling, 60% of the juice was gravity flowed to barrel and it underwent fermentation there with selected yeasts. The remainder was fermented in stainless steel tanks. All portions underwent full Malolactic fermentation and lees stirring to add complexity and mouth feel to the wine. The portions were blended together in July, and the wine was bottled without fining in August.
