Gift Pack - 2 btl Oak & Steel
This is the perfect gift for the fan of the Chardonnay grape – the same grape made two different ways.
The 2014 Chardonnay, Carneros District comes from three Carneros District, cool-weather vineyards planted to 'Shot-Wente' selection. These heirloom Chardonnay vines produce grapes that are smaller than normal, with a ratio of more skin to juice which translates into more flavors. Fermentation was carried out in a mixture of new and used French oak barrels using wild yeast and periodic lees stirring.
The 2016 Chardonnay, 304 is made from grapes grown in probably the coldest vineyard in Sonoma County Carneros so the mineral component of the gravelly soil is allowed to show through the fruit. It is fermented and aged in Grade 304 stainless steel - hence the name. The finished wine is crisp, fresh, and texturally rich and complex.
