Closson Chase Vineyards
2022 Estate Unoaked Chardonnay
VQA Prince Edward County
Wet stone and citrus open on the nose, completed by grassy, herbal tones. The palate is mineral driven, followed by peach and nectarine skins. Laser beam acidity and expressive salinity lead to a bright, focused finish.
Sourced entirely from our South Clos vineyard. Whole cluster pressed, then cool fermented in stainless steel at 14 C. No malolactic fermentation.
"This single-vineyard, unoaked Chardonnay opens with tempting, vibrant aromas of mango, kiwi, starfruit, peach, and sea breeze. A silky palate with ripe, zingy acid and a fine mineral vein proves incredible structure from the pure, uncloaked fruit of the estate cru-like South Clos vineyard. A flavourful, and refreshing long finish."
