The 2016 Côte Sud Chardonnay was sourced from the south facing slope of the Evenstad Vineyard, which ranges from 510 to 790 feet in elevation. The wine was aged for fifteen months in 40% new French oak prior to bottling. This gorgeous Chardonnay offers beautiful nuances of orchard fruits woven into minerals and vanilla cream aromatics that all mingle in the glass. The palate shows bright melon, citrus rind and wet stone with earthy undertones which all excite. Enjoy this brilliant new wine over the course of the next fifteen plus years.
