Sinor-LaVallee Bassi Vineyard Chardonnay 2013

SKU 494


The Chardonnay White Label favors discretion over ripeness, as it composed of early picks in the range of 22 Brix from all three Chardonnay clones planted at Bassi Vineyard. The picks are barrel fermented with both commercial and native yeasts in order to build dimension into the eventual blend. The final blend is made from a selection of standout barrels with the aim of producing a Chardonnay that is lean by nature, but also complete in mouthfeel and flavor.

Wine EnthusiastUsing fruit mostly from the Bassi Ranch property he recently acquired, Mike Sinor delivers a bright, minerally wine, with aromas of scratched grapefruit skin, orange and peach juice, burned lemons, sea salt, ripe apples and nectarines and fresh-cut herbs. Flavors of salty, lime-juice nectarines emerge once sipped, with hints of butter and white flowers.
