"Okay...here's the deal on this wine; The grapes are fermented naturally using only indigenous yeast cultures found on the skins of the grapes themselves, in the vineyards and within the walls of our winery. A very traditional and Burgundian approach, this extremely slow process requires a delicate balance between constant hand holding and hands off winemaking. The wine naturally sails through 100% malolactic while retaining its vital acidity resulting in a barrel fermented wine of unbelievable complexity, freshness, richness, flavor and length. A seriously sexy wine for those who long to take their Chardonnay habit to a whole new level."
