The Attune Reserve Chardonnay comes from the Station Ranch vineyard in Carneros, Sonoma County, California. The wine spends 18 months in a mix of new and neutral French oak barrels and another 12 months in the bottle before release. The winemaker is Kenneth Juhasz of Auteur Wines.
From the winery:
This racy single-vineyard wine captivates with aromas of spring flowers and lemon peel, notes of Gravenstein apple, brioche and chalk emerge from a flash of focused acidity. On the palate it is bright and structured with a backbone of minerality supporting rich fruit and a long, creamy finish.
Night hand-harvested, clusters are then cold-soaked and allowed to ferment slowly over the course of several days. After a gentle pressing, the juice goes into a carefully selected mix of neutral and new French oak barrels. We bottle after 18 months in barrel, then age the wines for an additional year before release.
The 2015 Attune Station Ranch Chardonnay Reserve begins with an excellent aroma of spiced green apple, lemons, melon and touches of fresh baked bread. Taking a sip reveals a smooth and very tasty wine. It's not the big buttery Chard I was expecting based on the 18 months in barrel but a really lovely, fruitier, elegant and harmonious wine. It ends dry with just a hint of butter, good length and lots of lasting tart fruit. Delicious!
