Ghost Pines Winemakers Blend Chardonnay 2007
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.

|Taste Profile: Ghost Pines 2007 Chardonnay possesses expressive fruit-forward characters, the result of sourcing only Premium fruit from three of California’s most recognized Chardonnay appellations: Sonoma, Napa and Monterey Counties. Modern winemaking techniques allow this wine to express characters of baked apple, pear and lemon cream accented by an elegant and sweet vanilla finish.|
The grapes for Ghost Pines 2007 Chardonnay were whole cluster pressed to eliminate bitterness and to maximize fresh fruit characters. After press, the juice was settled for 12-24 hours prior to fermentation. The juice was allowed to ferment for 2-3 weeks at 60oF, producing clean, expressive Chardonnay character. To create a more complex mouthfeel, a portion of the wine underwent sur lies aging and was influenced by oak. 100% of our Chardonnay completed malolactic fermentation, contributing a buttery texture along with deep, layered flavors
