2019 Allonge Chardonnay
This Chardonnay, fermented and aged in our French concrete egg, opens with notes of dusty earth and chalk mingled with peach pit, white flowers, and a subtle warm spice. On the palate, a vibrant minerality takes center stage with an accompanying cast of sweet fruit notes; most notably persimmon, quince, and orange marmalade. There is a richness to this wine that creates a wonderful density and weight that stretches into the finish and highlights the gentle sweetness of fruit and the varying textures of minerality. This wine has been bottled aged with intention to provide an easy, ready to drink experience with the additional complexities provided by a unique aging process in concrete.
