2013 Young Inglewood Vineyards Chardonnay Michael Mara Vineyard
Only white we sampled from Young Inglewood Vineyards. Creamy light golden yellow. Beautiful nose with creamy and buttery attack, with some hay and a little toasty. Some green apple and citrus undertones. Moderate acidity (7/10) with some tart apples on the attack. Creamy and a little bit of butter in the long finish. Some minerality too. Definitely a full bodied white.
Made of 100% Chardonnay, all the fruit in this bottling comes from the Michael Mara Vineyard in the Sonoma Coast. The Michael Mara Vineyard is owned by the Matthiassons and the Idell family. Comprised of rocky and volcanic soil this vineyard has the perfect growing conditions for the classic Burgundian expression. This bottling is fermented in both new and neutral French oak barrels before being aged for 20 months in 70% French oak barrels and 30% stainless steel. Partial malolactic fermentation occurred. Only 68 cases produced and 13.7% alcohol.
