FEL er det nye navn for Breggo Cellars. Navnet er nyt...men alt andet er som det altid har været - vinmarker, winemaker etc. Super velsmagende og Californisk Chardonnay når det er sværest at holde fingrene fra.
Vineyards This Chardonnay is a blend of multiple clones sourced from Ferrington and Savoy Vineyards, located near the towns of Boonville and Philo, respectively, in Anderson Valley. Winemaking The fruit was harvested September 12 through October 8 at an average of 23.0° Brix, then whole cluster pressed to tank and settled for 24 hours. Fermentation occurred in neutral French oak barrels, and very limited malolactic fermentation was permitted. The wine was aged sur lie in 60 gallon neutral French oak barrels for nine months. Winemaker Notes The hallmarks of our Anderson Valley Chardonnay, bright acidity and vibrant fruit, are achieved by picking the grapes before the sugar gets too high, limiting malolactic fermentation, and using very little new oak. Aromatics of lemon panna cotta, verbena, and subtle hints of lime zest and struck flint give depth to the nose. On the palate, flavors of lemon zest, honey, and chamomile are punctuated by refreshing acidity.
