Winemaker Notes

Our single vineyard Chardonnay from Coles Valley Vineyard was picked and fermented separately by block and by clone. The fruit was pressed and the solids were removed from the juice. The wine was fermented at low temperatures for over a month to maintain freshness and aromatics. Complete Malolactic fermentation was followed by sur lie aging to attain beautiful character, structure and texture. The separate lots were racked and blended to give a true representation of the vineyard. Gentle bentonite fining and cold stabilization were followed by filtration for clarity

Ingredients

Grapes, Yeast, Yeast Nutrient, Tannin, Lactic Acid, Citric Acid, Tartaric Acid, SO2

Vintage Notes

2020 began with a cool, wet spring. Budbreak was tracking in a normal pattern, while rain during bloom caused yields to be lower than normal - focusing concentration of berry and flavor development. A cooler than normal July and August helped the fruit ripen slowly and evenly, with a heat bump in the first week of September to help finish out the year. We picked the grapes for Rascal Chardonnay just after the early September heat spike, in perfect weather.

A new fan

Bought this because of the label --- have a dog named Rascal and anybody who supports HSUS is someone I support. HOWEVER, I'd support these people anyhow --- great wine. A crisp, refreshing, dry --- but not too dry --- chardonney. Glad I found it and I will be back for more!
