[SOLD OUT] The hand-harvested grapes were
grown in our Redstone Vineyard at a commanding vista of 5,800
feet in altitude. The long, cool growing season creates intensely
flavored fruit which holds its acidity very well. Our Redstone
Reserve Chardonnay is harvested late in the season. The mountain
climate of the Paonia area creates this sterling example of
a crisply structured and richly flavored Chardonnay reminiscent
of French white burgundies.
The wine was 100% barrel fermented at cool temperatures to
preserve the unique fruit flavors. Partial malolactic fermentation
adds a rich texture and softens the wine, but the acidic balance
keeps the wine vibrant on the palate. Aging in American and
Hungarian oak barrels accentuates the wine’s buttery,
nutty aromas. Spicy apple flavors enhance the lingering finish.
