2015 Joie de Vivre Chardonnay Los Carneros

GOLD MEDAL - 2017 Sonoma County Harvest Fair

A full bodied and deeply complex wine from Manley Vineyards in the Los Carneros region of Sonoma County. Tropical and citrus fruit flavors dance on your palate and are followed beautifully with toasted vanilla, creamy coconut, and roasted marshmallows.

Tasting Notes

Tropical and citrus fruit flavors dance all over your mouth. Pineapple, ripe pears, and golden delicious apples mix beautifully with honey comb and a slight yeasty mid palate leads into a long fin ish of toasted vanilla, creamy coconut, and roasted marshmallows.

50% barrel fermented, 50% stainless steel fermented - 100% Chardonnay

Winemaker Notes

100% Dijon clones makes for a wine with depth and playfulness. The crisp clean flavors show off the youthfulness of this vineyard, yet, the deep structure of the wine is a highlight of things to come from these very young vines. This fresh, crisp, and complex wine was fermented in both oak barrels and stainless steel tanks.

Cooperage Notes

Aged for 11 months in 30% new French oak barrles
