Matthiasson Chardonnay Linda Vista 2018
Golden delicious apples, yellow peaches, musk melon and honey on the nose and through the palate. Medium acidity with medium flesh with clean mineral finish. Certified organic Chardonnay picked at different times during ripening period- earlier harvests contribute acidity and minerality and later harvests contribute to flesh and richness. Whole cluster press then fermented and aged in seasoned French oak- only native yeast. No battonage (lees stirring) or racking. 2/5 go through Malo lactic.
