The Federalist Chardonnay

Mendocino County, California, USA, 2014/2015


Made from 100% Mendocino County Chardonnay grapes that are tank fermented, the lees are stirred regularly throughout the malolactic fermentation and the wine is aged on them prior to blending.


Another ageing process follows, primarily in American and Hungarian oak, with a little bit of French - 35% of the barrels are new.


The Hungarian oak mimics French with an added spicy character, while the American provides a sweeter note.


A rich, golden colour, the wine presents ripe fruit reminiscent of lemon curd and pear on the nose, while the palate has a lush texture and a long, smooth finish punctuated with cinnamon and cardamom spice.
