Released March 20, 2021

13.5% ALC

TASTING NOTES

Tropical fruit, Asian pear, butterscotch, vanilla and Crème Brulee with rounded texture. Flavors of almonds, mango and baking spice linger on the long, smooth finish.

METHOD

Our second Chardonnay was made to bridge the gap between two very polar styles--buttery and fruity.  To achieve roundness and just enough butteriness, we barrel-aged our Chardonnay for 16 months in 100% new French oak and stopped our malo-lactic fermentation at 25%.  We feel this method preserved the wonderful tropical fruit flavors courtesy of the exceptionally hot 2017 growing season.  To add a touch of old world character, we bottled the 2017 Luck Dragon Chardonnay without filtration.
