Quail’s Gate, Stewart Family, Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

Composed of clone 95 exclusively this is the estate’s flagship white, grapes are grown on the volcanic slopes of Boucherie Mountain just above the winery. The Stewart Family Reserve Chardonnay is whole-cluster pressed and 100% barrel fermented in new and neutral French oak. Full malolactic fermentation was carried out to enhance the mid-palate, with aging on lees and regular battonage. It shows a rich creaminess that relates to its new world style. It’s fragrant and opulent with a mature orchard fruit aromatic profile. Deliciously rounded.
