2015 Bancroft Chardonnay
2015 Bancroft Chardonnay Mendocino County
Tasting Notes: This wine displays lovely Chardonnay characteristics of citrus and apples. The acidity of the wine is nicely balanced and can be enjoyed either as an appetizer or with your favorite food. This wine will enliven dishes that call for a splash of fresh citrus, such as seafood, ocean fish or poultry. It also makes a refreshing pairing with lighter fare such as goat cheese, salads, and crudités.
Wine Making: The wine was fermented in oak and with yeast strains that enhance the bright citrus and stone fruit characters of the grape. A cool fermentation was chosen to help lock in additional flavor intensity and capture the essence of the Chardonnay varietal character. Malo-lactic fermentation was allowed as it contributes a lovely roundness to the mouthfeel.
