Raymond R Collection Lot No. 3 Chardonnay 2016
Our 2016 R Collection Chardonnay is an exquisitely balanced and crisp Chardonnay primarily fermented in stainless steel tanks and only a very small amount of oak, providing a nice alternative to the heavier oaked Chardonnays. It also underwent a partial malolactic fermentation which develops a gentle creaminess but also retains some acidity for freshness. It opens with a fresh, floral nose with bright citrus notes and balanced with a touch of vanilla. With a crisp mouthfeel, this wine displays a nicely balanced acidity and culminates with a smooth finish that makes it the perfect pairing with a variety of dishes.
