Fermented and aged exclusively in stainless steel, the Sans Chêne (without oak) is very showy with tropical fruit aromas, as well as solid apple, pear and lemony citrus flavors. This style of wine may be fresh and fruity, but it will continue to grow in complexity as it ages and subtle nuances of honey and pecan begin to show. Chardonnay has the capacity to go for many years in the bottle and display wonderful notes of spice and caramel. Our 2018 Sans Chêne has a very crisp acidity that is balanced against the tiny amount of residual sugar which adds to the overall body of the wine. Perfect by itself, or with any number of foods--- from grilled chicken and fish to lighter vegetarian dishes, this is definitely a Chardonnay that stands alone.
