Toasted Head Chardonnay 750ML
The grapes are picked during the night to preserve freshness, then gently de-stemmed and pressed at the winery. We ferment 100% of the juice sur lie (basically, with the sediment) in a combination of new and used American, Eastern European and French oak barrels for eight months. This wine delivers white peach and Asian pear aromas and is rich, yet crisp on the palate with great acidity. We prefer to just think of it as a solid American Chardonnay with some oaky heft behind it. Pairs well with brie & crackers, a walk in the woods on a warm fall day, and Skype dates with old friends.
