Costa Vinedo 2020 Chardonnay

Costa Vinedo 2020 Chardonnay

AGING/COOPERAGE

11 months of aging using 50% new French oak and 50% seasoned French oak.

WINEMAKING DATA

Grapes were gently pressed to barrel for fermentation and aged for eleven months using 50% new French oak barrels and 50% seasoned French oak barrels from coopers Taransaud and Francois Freres. The lees were stirred gently during and after fermentation creating creamy mouthfeel and elegant fruit flavors. 

WINEMAKER NOTES

Sweet Jasmine, honeysuckle, apple, melon with notes of seared pineapple and five-spice dominant the aromatics. A wine of crisp structure and a elegant rich finish, emulates the aromas perfectly with additional notes of fresh vanilla bean hazelnut and toasted coconut flakes. Total production 248 cases. 

VINTAGE NOTES

The 2020 Central Coast growing season stared off in good form. A wet winter helped feed nutrients and minerals into the vines during the dormant months. This is important as the vines will need all of these during the critical stage of bud break early in the spring.  There were a few periods of freezing periods in late March and early April during early shoot growth but we were unaffected. With a warm even tempered summer prior to harvest we saw wonderful hang time allowing the fruit to fully mature. We were very fortunate that smoke from the fires of Napa and Sonoma did not effect our vineyards.
