2017 Laundry Vineyard Chardonnay
The 2017 Laundry Vineyard Chardonnay is now available to purchase in single bottles!
An exciting part of our new Single Vineyard series. Heather Laundry has been growing high quality organic grapes for 20 years, including Pinot Noir, Gamay, Cabernet Franc and this gorgeous, silky Chardonnay.
Hand harvested from old vines (25 yrs) in the Lincoln Lakeshore sub appellation, this mixed clonal block ripened slowly through a cool growing season and cool fall temperatures. Whole clusters were gently pressure using our “long, slow” press cycle and slightly settled juice was transferred to 300 L used French oak for wild yeast and malolactic fermentation. Five selected barrels were blended after 10 months to make this single vineyard wine. One barrel was new French oak - 25% new wood
