The 2009 Alamos Chardonnay exhibits flavors of ripe apple and tropical fruit flavors, with a hint of spice and butterscotch from the oak aging.
The grapes were vineyard selected and hand-harvested prior to being pressed. The juice was cold settled and solids were removed prior to fermentation in upright fermenters and barrels. Approximately seventy-five percent of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation, before aging on the lees for 3 to 4 months to impart a rich, toasty mouthfeel. The wine was then aged in French and American oak for 3 to 6 months prior to bottling.
Bright, light yellow. Subtly, pure, ripe aromas of nectarine and yellow plum. Supple, sweet and seamless, with attractive, lush stone fruit flavors for a wine in this price range. The satisfying finish offers a nice touch of grip. A great chardonnay value.
