Tasting Notes
The 2021 La Cruz Chardonnay is bright and has a beautiful golden color. The wine shows aromas of tropical and stone fruit with a hint of vanillin oak. The wine is expressive in the mouth and exhibits green apple, pear, wet stone, white flowers, caramel, butter toast texture with a long, mouthwatering finish of acidity.
Winemaker Notes
Our chardonnay was harvested in the cold night and came in at 23.3 Brix. The fruit was pressed using a gentle cycle, the juice settled for 12 hours prior racking in barrels where they went through primary and second fermentation. Our 2018 La Cruz Chardonnay is filtered but not fined. We used Nomacorc 100 closure, with a specific low oxygen ingress rate, eliminating any oxidation. It is a 100% plant-based closure with a carbon neutral footprint, aligning with our mission.
