In a world dominated by Pinot Noir, the Chardonnays of Evening Land have quietly earned a loyal following. The bright, clean, and lively Seven Springs Chardonnay grows in the rockier areas of the vineyardâ€™s mid-slope, offering a precise wine of clarity and finesse. Our 2016 Seven Springs Chardonnay is emblematic
of an exceptionally balanced vintage. With a
nose of stone fruit, this wine unfurls gracefully,
interweaving its svelte texture with zestful acidity
and a saline detail.
Our Estate Chardonnay comes from a unique section in the south block of Seven Springs. The wine underwent whole cluster pressing before being racked to once-used French barriques and Stockinger puncheons (500L) for fermentation. The wine remained in barrel for 12 months when it was racked to tank. The wine completed �levage in tank for another 6 months before bottling. The Seven Springs Chardonnay was cold stabilized and lightly fined with bentonite clay before bottling.
