Whole bunch pressed Naramata Chardonnay; 30% to new Francois Frere French oak in Puncheon. Full malolactic fermentation took place with 11 months lees aging. A minimal intervention approach to this wine allows the fruit to shine and dictate the end flavour profile. Little handling means this wine was not stabilized, therefore harmless tartrites, or “wine diamonds” are possible.
