Vinification Details: The grapes for Barefoot Chardonnay were harvested at optimum ripeness, which allowed for easy extraction of rich colour and velvety tannins. The winemaker selected aromatic yeast strains and employed a warm fermentation process, which has resulted in a wine with more flavour and fruitier aromatics. Proper storage after fermentation has helped to build complexity on the palate and bring a nice balance to the wine.
History: The 2019 season started out normal. There was a significant rain event in mid-May. Post rain event had excellent growing conditions for the rest of the season. The season brought consistent temperatures with just enough heat for good canopy growth, development of flavours, and ripening without impacting acidity.
Regional Information: About 100 kilometres from San Francisco and sitting at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, California’s Central Valley produces Chardonnay fruit of outstanding quality. Consistently favourable weather conditions create a growing season in which the grapes enjoy plenty of hang time. Not only does this region enjoy the benefits of the natural protection and favourable microclimate provided by the Sierra Nevada’s, but its soil is also rich in minerals.
