La Source Chardonnay continues the great tradition of elegance and richness we’ve come to expect from this site. Sourced from the old-vine Dijon clones in the lower half of a narrow band of 14 vine rows, the wine speaks of our volcanic soils and terrific growing season in 2017.
The 2017 La Source Chardonnay was gently pressed into neutral puncheons (500L) for spontaneous and indigenous fermentation. The wine completed Malolactic fermentation and was raised sur lie in the same puncheons, for 12 months before being racked to tank. After a light fining with bentonite clay, the wine was bottled without filtering.
