Chardonnay, Bogle Vineyards
USA – 2019
Tasting Note: A treat of a Chardonnay from California, with green apples, pears and pineapples on the nose and butterscotch and vanilla, balanced by fresh acidity, on the tongue.
Food Matching: Enjoy this wine with just about everything!
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.
