2020 Chandler Egan Reserve Rogue Valley Chardonnay
The 2020 “Chandler Egan Reserve” is a single clone blend of Espiguette 352 from 2 distinct blocks on the Dancin Estate. The fruit was hand-sorted in the field while picking and pressed whole cluster. The juice was transferred to tank, where it received no sulfur additions, in the start of a process called ‘black Chardonnay’. After settling and oxidation, the juice was transferred to barrel where it was inoculated and fermented. After fermentation 50% of the barrels were allowed to complete malolactic conversion before they were topped and sulfured.
