UNFILTERED BLONDE, A SONOMA COUNTY CHARDONNAY
The 2013 Unfiltered Blonde Chardonnay was produced using grapes from select vineyards in Sonoma County and one vineyard in the Yountville appellation of Napa Valley.
The grapes were hand-picked and whole-cluster pressed. The Sonoma County fruit was fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the varietal characteristics. The Yountville portion was fermented in french oak barrels to give the wine a rich mouth feel and a kiss of oak.
This versatile Chardonnay pairs well with poultry, seafood, white meats and dishes with cream sauce.
Bright aromas of pear and apple mingle with sweet and toasty vanilla. The palate is bright with succulent fruit flavors and oak notes. A perfect balance of smooth and creamy texture and crisp acidity provide for a lengthy finish.
Tyson & Jenni Rippey along with their family have been making wine and growing premium wine grapes in California for more than 30 years. Today they are one of the largest custom wine producers in the U.S. and make wine for some of the top brands in the nation. Brandi is proud to be working with The Vintners Group on UNFILTERED BLONDE.
