2007 Chardonnay

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.
