The 2015 vintage of Mayacamas Chardonnay-our team's third making the wines-is perhaps our best effort yet. In its youthful state the wine is notably intense and focused, with the mouthwatering acidity taking center stage. Aromatic notes of lime zest, wet slate, fresh vanilla, and lemon candy mark the nose. The powerful palate is supported by bracing acidity and multiple citrus fruits-key lime, kumquat, and seville orange. Secondary flavors of pine, oyster shell, and flint make for a complex and exciting Chardonnay. Our winemaking methods have evolved slightly in this vintage, most notably with the inclusion of partial neutral barrel fermentation. The wine was whole cluster pressed, fermented in a combination of small barrels (7% new), stainless steel, and large format foudres. On the lees for seven months, ten months of total aging. Malolactic fermentation was inhibited, and the finished wine saw nine months of bottle aging.
