J. Moss 2016 Chardonnay, Carneros, Napa Valley, California, USA

Winemaker: James Moss 

Farming: Sustainable

Varieties: Chardonnay

Terroir: Cooler climate site from Los Carneros

Vinification: In  three  different vineyard waves, grapes  were  hand-picked,  cold  at  night  at  47°  F,  then  gently  whole  cluster pressed to settle 24 hours.  Each lot was racked into 100% French  oak,  50%  new,  for  cold,  slow  barrel  fermentation with both native and artisan yeasts to preserve and elevate fruits  and  full  texture.    We  stirred  twice  a  month  during complete  malolactic  fermentation,  then  aged  sur-lie  until bottling an extended, rich 18 month cuvee

Aging:  18 months in 50% French oak

Tasting Notes: Inviting  silky,  round  texture  with  saturated  fruits  and balanced  oak  aromatics.    Ripe  tropical  flavors  of  crushed pineapple,  honeydew  melon  and  honeycomb  layered  in harmony   with   baking   spices,   toasted   almond,   vanilla crème brulee and a kiss of butterscotch.  Bright lemon zest completes its smooth extended finish. Drinking deliciously now, and will age gracefully with proper cellaring. This is truly a chardonnay lover dream enjoy
