The grapes used to produce our 2007 Shannon Ridge Lake County Chardonnay show great varietal character. This wine was barrel fermented and oak aged for five months in 100% American oak barrels, 15% new barrels. To enhance richness, depth and mouth feel and to elevate the ripe fruit characters, we blended in 4% stainless steel fermented fruit.
