Palmaris 2017 Outer Coastal Plain Chardonnay Reserve
This wine is produced from 100% Dijon clone Chardonnay grapes grown in the Winery's Flittertown Road Vineyard in the Outer Coastal Plain. The harvest occurred on September 14, 2017, at maturity consistent with reserve quality. The must was pressed, chilled, racked and fermented with a yeast isolated from the Suze‐la‐Rousse in the Cote du Rhone. Simultaneous malo‐lactic fermentation was initiated. Sixty percent of the wine was transferred to Boswell Light Toast American Oak for 6 months, then remarried with its 40% the non-oak portion and bottled.
Notes: Melon, dill, light buttery finish
Awards: Silver - American Wine Society, Bronze - Finger Lakes International Wine Competition
