The Canoe Ridge Estate Chardonnay is inherently vibrant, refined and elegant and we like to enhance that style in the cellar. This Chardonnay delivers fresh apple, pear and spice aromas and flavors. The finish is elegant and refined with light spice notes, which are a result of the restrained French oak treatment.
Half of the 2007 Canoe Ridge Estate Chardonnay was fermented with native yeasts in 44% new French oak. It went through malolactic fermentation and was aged for 10 months sur lie. Medium straw-colored, on the nose it offers greater minerality and less tropical/fruity notes than the Indian Wells cuvee. On the palate it exhibits an elegant, more tightly wound personality with notes of butterscotch and baking spices emerging from this impeccably balanced effort. It will drink well over the next 5-6 years.
