This labor-intensive wine is fermented and aged in neutral French oak barrels to achieve a mere whisper of vanilla-spice oak flavor that allows the pear and apple fruit flavors to shine through. Traditional “Sur Lies” French-style yeast aging releases Champagne-like characteristics of biscuit, almond, and cream, reminiscent of sparkling wines from the Champagne region of Northern France.
Our 2016 "Sur Lies" Chardonnay displays flavors of pear, apple, cream, almond, and vanilla. Pairs best with white meat, salad, and friends.
