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.

Winemaker Notes:
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
