Classic Clarksburg personality shines through in the green apple and pear notes, while a bit more tropical pineapple breezes by. The rich mouthfeel created by aging on the lees abounds mid-palate, while the finish is wrapped in creamy textures and tones from the malolactic fermentation. Spicy American oak notes of butterscotch and vanilla are the perfect balance to the freshness and acidity of this multifaceted wine.
Vinification: Winemaking is both an art and a science, and Bogle winemakers have again hand-crafted a perfectly balanced, easy to drink Chardonnay. Using the techniques of barrel fermentation, surlies aging and partial malolactic fermentation, winemakers have layered flavour upon flavour, creating a complex wine with generous character. Fermentation takes place in 50% new American oak and also has sur-lies ageing. Once fermentation is complete the wine spends a further 9 months in new American oak.
