Big Leap Chardonnay (2014)

Big Leap Chardonnay (2014)

2014 was a warmer than average year, and th beautifully long growing season let us pick these grapes just after Thanksgiving. This Chardonnay was harvested predominantly from Block 6, with a small amount coming from Block 12. We 100% barrel fermented with 100% wild yeast to really showcase our site, and create a wine that will live in the bottle for a few years to come.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine is complex and interesting. There are notes of flint and mineral on the nose, while riper citrus notes bubble underneath. Some bright acidity provides focus on the palate and creates a long, lingering finish.
Vineyard Notes
90% Block 6. 10% Block 12. Soil types are Burnell Lake and Greata.
Food Pairing Notes
Gotta be oysters. If you’re not an oyster lover, then the freshest crab you can lay your hands on.
Production
345 cases.
Other Notes
Be careful not to over chill this wine, you’ll mute some of what makes it so special.
