2014 X-Novo Chardonnay Magnum
On the nose, Lemon peel, and citrus oil, white flower, brioche bread and popcorn. On the palate Saline and zippy mouthfeel with long mineral finish.
We were fortunate enough to obtain 2 tons of Chardonnay from the wonderful X-Novo vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. The Chardonnay was picked on September 14th. We started fermentation in stainless steel, completing primary and secondary fermentations in 20% new oak barrels. The wine was so delicious, it was bottled unfiltered.
