50th Parallel Estate Winery

50th Parallel Estate Chardonnay

50th Parallel Estate Chardonnay

Near perfect fruit arrived at the crush pad and was gently whole bunch pressed to preserve aromatics and give us clear juice to put to ferment in our best 100% French oak barrels. A natural spring malolactic fermentation occured in the spring of 2016 bringing complex structure and creaminess to the wine. The wine was in barrel for a total of 10 months before blending.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Distinctive character, with rich palate coating textures and lots of layers and depth - this is benchmark Wine Appearance: Light golden hue; bright and clear Aroma: Cinnamon buns in the oven, toasting almonds, cedarbox smoke and fresh baked apple pie. Palate: Intense peach stonefruit, citrus blossom, melon and toasted pine nuts, with a finish of earthy elements of fresh mushrooms and herbs. Think of: Red carpet / Oscars movie night under the stars.

Production Notes
Near perfect fruit arrived at the crush pad and was gently whole bunch pressed to preserve aromatics and give us clear juice to put to ferment in our best 100% French oak barrels. A natural spring malolactic fermentation occured in the spring of 2016 bringing complex structure and creaminess to the wine. The wine was in barrel for a total of 10 months before blending. Bottled unfined and unfiltered in February 2017, under a screwcap fitted with a breathable liner to promote micro-oxygen transfer into the wine which over time will help build tannic complexity during aging.
Food Pairing Notes
Traditional pairings to consider include smoked salmon, roast turkey, pork, poultry, mushrooms, spicy food and aged cheeses.
