95% Chardonnay from Seven Springs Vineyard and 5% Pinot noir and lees from Maresh Vineyard. The 2018 Pink Label Chardonnay continues to explore how minute additions of Pinot noir and Pinot noir lees can enhance the dimensions of Chardonnay, creating a unique rosé wine which is rare, modest, and distinct.
Seven Springs Chardonnay was hand-picked and pressed on September 20th, 2018. After 12 hours of settling, the juice was lightly sulfured. Ambient yeast fermentations finished dry in French oak within four weeks. Uninoculated malolactic completed between late October and early December. After nine months aging on lees in neutral 228L French oak barrels, Springs Vineyard Chardonnay was gas racked to a neutral 300L puncheon and dosed with 5% 2018 Pinot noir and lees from Maresh Vineyard. The wine spent the second winter in puncheon with no lees stirring before being gas racked to stainless steel in February 2020. Lightly fined with bentonite, this wine was bottled without filtration after 18 months aging, in March 2020. 40 cases made
