THIS WINE IS STILL LEAN AND CRISP AND RACY... IT'S A GREAT SUMMER WINE!
“Liquid Joy” is lean and racy while still being lusciously bodacious. Sourced from the impeccably farmed Clos Pepe Vineyard, which in our opinion nurtures the most aromatic and balanced Chardonnay’s in the region.
The blend of stainless steel and neutral oak, nativie yeast fermentaion yielded an amazingly complex wine. Nectarine, peaches, ripe pear, lemon cream, wet granite.Lean, firm and textured while remaining elegant.This wine will age gracefully for the next 10 years
