2018 Foley Sonoma Winemaker Series Chardonnay, Alexander Valley
2018 Winemaker's Chardonnay is a full-bodied wine with aromas of honey dew, Meyer lemon, yellow pear and freshly made Crème Brûlée. On the palate the melon, yellow pear, caramel and a finish of the Meyer lemon creates a vibrant satisfying finish.
11 months in French oak
The vineyards of Foley Sonoma lie at the heart of our estate in the Alexander Valley. Our Chardonnay vines are planted in rich soil that supports the Dijon and Robert Young clones. After harvest, the fruit was fermented in French oak barrels and aged for 11 months. Regular lees stirring after fermentation enhanced the concentration and complexity of the flavors and aromatics.
