Chateau Souverain Chardonnay, Sonoma County 2005
Winery: Chateau Souverain
Chardonnay grapes, ripened to perfection, were whole-cluster pressed to obtain the most delicate juice with low skin phenolics and high-quality grape solids. Because the lots were fermented and aged spearately in oak barrels, Winemaker Ed Killian was able to create a broad palate of blending components by selecting from an array of different barrel lots. The wines completed 100% malolactic fermentation and aged sur lie, with stirring performed monthly for ten months. This classic winemaking style has resulted in an elegant integration of the fruit and oak components, and enhances the body and toasty characteristics so important to mouthfeel and finish.
