Martin Ray Chardonnay 2012

Martin Ray Chardonnay 750ML 2012      
Sku: 18928

Our Chardonnay is pressed in small lots with whole clusters, then mostly native yeast is used in the fermentation process with very little malolactic in order to retain brightness. The wine is 100% barrel fermented for seven months in French oak; 15% new oak, 85% 1–4 year old barrels. Aging in French oak barrels "on the lees” develops rounder, creamier texture in the wine. Inviting aromas of fresh juicy pear, baked apple and cinnamon are just like a fresh baked apple crisp. A lively mouth feel echoing the aromatics with good acid and a solid backbone. Finishes bright and crisp with a pronounced minerality.

Rating
 Wine Enthusiast 90 points (Oct 2013)
Not a big wine, but an elegant one, displaying lovely Chardonnay character at a good price. Creamy flavors of pineapples, mangoes, buttered toast and vanilla bean make it delicious. - Editor’s Choice

Food pairing
fresh lobster tails with a rich butter sauce, fettuccine alfredo or a butternut squash soup
