Little Engine French Family Chardonnay

Regular price $40.00

Little Engine’s French Family Release Chardonnay showcases stony minerality throughout – classically reminiscent of northern Burgundy Chablis. Summer floral notes, aromas of apricot, lemon & mandarin orange lead into a fresh palate of white peach & nectarine and hints of lime & honey, all structured with vibrant acidity.

Production Notes

The fruit is hand harvested then allowed to cool overnight. Grapes are either whole cluster pressed or de-stemmed and cold soaked for 12 – 16 hours and then pressed. Free and press run juices are kept separate. This Chardonnay is 100% stainless steel tank fermented using a variety of yeasts, to create a complexity of flavours and aromatic esters.

Winemaker Notes

The fruit for this wine is 100% Naramata Bench and was sourced from 2 of our vineyards. The grapes for this wine were harvested at different times, late September and early October, based on flavours in the vineyard. This encourages complexity in flavours and acidity. Different leaf removal strategies were employed to give a variety of bunch exposure times and subsequent flavour development.
