Darms Lane Oak Knoll Chardonnay 2016
Unapologetically creamy Chardonnay. Aged in French oak barrels, soft to the palate, with notes of stone fruit, fig, vanilla, and orange blossoms. Medium body with a cream texture. From the Napa Valley & aged in French oak barrels with native yeast, the wine is aged on the lees (sur lie) and stirred every two weeks to build texture and creaminess. Malolactic fermentation softens the palate and to adds flavor complexity and aromas of Asian pear, brioche with hints of caramelized apple and fig. Rich yet balanced. Moderate acidity!
