2018 Brittan Vineyards Chardonnay Estate

This is the first vintage of our Estate Chardonnay.  The fruit is 100% from our estate vineyard in the  McMinnville AVA. The 2018 vintage started cool and wet in February and  March, which led to a more "normal" budbreak in April.  The seaon quickly accelerated and was warm and dry beginning in May. Summer brought very warm, dry weather through August, which put pressure on the vines and produced fruit of great depth and concentratoin. September was dry but more moderate and allowed the fruit to evolve on the vine until nearly the end of the month.  

Tasting Notes:  The nose of our 2018 Chardonnay draws you in with a stylish flintiness and aromas of sweet Meyer lemon, pea tendrils and a hint of honeysuckle.  Scents of Asian pear carry throught to the palate, mingling with lemon curd, yellow peach, and brioche.  This sleek, taut, acid-driven wine evolves in the glass and will continue to develop with some cellaring.

Production Notes:  The fruit was picked in late September and barrel fermented in 15% new French Oak. The wine went through malo-lactic fermentation and was aged for 10 months prior to bottling.
