Leo Steen 2020 'Casa Verde' Red Table Wine, Redwood Valley, California

Winemaker: Leo Hansen

Farming: Organic 

Variety: Field blend of Grenache and Carignan blended with Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, French Colombard

Terroir: Sandy, clay loam from 70+ year old head-trained vines

Vinification: The berries are crushed prior to pressing. Fermented in a combination of 360 gallon French oak cask and 500-liter French oak puncheons. 

Aging: 16 months in French oak cask, French oak barrels, and 500-liter puncheons.  100% malolactic fermentation, lees were occasionally stirred. This cool-climate Chardonnay was bottled in early 2020 using minimum sulphur.

Tasting Notes: Layered and intricate, this medium-bodied Chardonnay is plush, but bright. Notes of fresh lemon peel, kumquats and lime are complemented by chalky and saline notes. The wine lingers on the palate, finishing with tart acidity and just a hint of nuttiness.
