Creamy tropical fruit aromas range from pineapple to kiwi with Meyer lemon notes. The mouth-feel is smooth, fresh and balanced with well-integrated toasted oak.
The 2018 Oro Bello Chardonnay is ready to drink and will keep easily for up to three years.We use a champagne press cycle to lower the phenolic content of our wine. The fruit from Lodi goes through both primaty and secondary fermentation in to increase the richness and viscosity, while the Petaluma Gap fruit only goes through primary fermentation in order to maintain its acid, aromatic complexity and the identity of its terroir. Both lots are combined 3 months before bottling and are crossflow filtered. No chemical additives or adjustments are made except for the addition of the absolute minimum effective sulfites needed. 20% Chardonnay Keller Estate Vineyard in the Petaluma Gap AVA, Sonoma Coast + California 80% Chardonnay Lodi AVA
