2009 Chardonnay

The grapes used to produce our 2009 Shannon Ridge Lake County Chardonnay were picked from several different blocks to help create an elegant multi-layered wine with great complexity. The wine was barrel fermented in American oak and a portion was put through Malo-lactic fermentation to help create a creamy buttery richness and soft vanilla flavors.
