Cruse Wine Company, Rorick Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

$38.00 Excl. tax
EAN Code:

Lemon rind, orange blossoms, with just a small amount of almond extract and vanilla. On the palate, oily and mineral with a savory finish.

APPELLATION: Sierra Foothills

VARIETAL: Chardonnay

VINEYARD: This wine comes from a unique site high in the Sierra Foothills just outside of the town of Murphys. The vines are own-rooted and planted in 1974 in schist soils over limestone bedrock and were recently purchased by Matthew Rorick and his family. The vine age, elevation, and rocky soils create incredibly low-yielding vines with the tiniest of clusters.

VINIFICATION: The grapes were hand harvested and gently pressed using a long Champagne press cycle. Juice was transferred to neutral barrels and fermentation occurred spontaneously. The wine received a small amount of sulfur immediately before bottling.

Production: 486 cases
