Hendry Chardonnay Barrel Fermented 16
The Barrel Fermented Chardonnay is whole-cluster-pressed and then cold-settled. It is barrel fermented sur lie and aged in French oak barrels for 11 months, without racking, undergoing monthly battonage. Approximately one-third of the barrels are new each year. The Barrel Fermented Chardonnay does not undergo any malolactic fermentation, which is important for retaining its food-friendly acidity.
Yellow-gold color. Green/golden apple and spice aromatics. The soft, medium-weight palate, with layered flavors of tangy fruit, and spicy oak and apple peel on the finish.
