FrostWatch Chardonnay 2015
The 2015 vintage (like the 2012, 2013 and 2014 vintages) was an excellent vintage in Bennett Valley. The growing season was long with moderate temperatures and very low disease pressure in the vineyard. As with other Frostwatch Chardonnays, this wine is a blend of two different clonal selections. Clone 4 contributes a full mouthfeel with loads of red apple fruit, while fruit from the Platt-Wente Block contributes vibrant citrus notes and a touch of minerality. This wine continues to improve with additional bottle aging and still has yet to reach its full potential. The wine pairs well with a variety of foods, however it is rich and complex enough to drink beautifully on its own.
