By combining the characteristics that both traditional barrel fermentation and stainless steel ferment provide, we were able to retain the delicious tropical fruit flavors, while also giving wine consumers what they have come to love in Chardonnay—creamy notes, toast, spice, and vanilla without being overdone in any way. No “stick of butter and a 2 x 4” Chardonnay here! Very food friendly and crowd pleasing!
