One Ball Chardonnay
An all-grown-up Chardonnay that would not fine itself lost on the streets of Burgundy. Soft and rounded with the complexity of experience but the precision that comes with absolutely nailing the picking date. There is much to be said for not forcing grapes to ripeness and the languorous conditions of the latter half of the 2017 vintage ensured restraint. Like a perfect peach individually wrapped in crisp, waxy paper, served with cream from a well-loved cow and sprinkled lightly with nutmeg.
100% Kenton Valley Chardonnay, wild yeasts, nine months bâttonage, 10 months in 10% new French oak.
