Apollo Chardonnay

$32.50 /750ML

Wine Description

All of our Chardonnays are picked early for higher acid and lower alcohol for refreshing acidity, defined mineral notes, and lingering finish.  The Apollo Chardonnay is a blend consisting of half new Billon puncheon and half second-fill Damy Burgundy barrel.  These barrels are chosen during a blind tasting for their signature "Apollo" nose and body.  To strike a balance between old-world and new-world, it was aged on its lees for 18 months before bottling.

Tasting Notes

A luscious, full-bodied Chardonnay that is bright enough to be paired with fresh-caught crab or lobster. Made with more oak contact than the Estate Chardonnay, the Apollo Chardonnay strikes a divine balance of bold citrus with a stony core.

“Fermented and aged in a single puncheon, this is packed with bright citrus fruit running through lemon, lime and grapefruit. Those forward, potent fruit flavors conjure up suggestions of Mountain Dew without the sugar, but there's much more going on in terms of depth and overall balance. It's nice counterpoint to the regular, stainless-fermented Chardonnay. - Paul Gregutt ”
