Meiomi Chardonnay, Monterey-Sonoma-Santa Barbara

Meiomi Chardonnay, Monterey-Sonoma-Santa Barbara

A blend of 100% Chardonnay grapes from three distinct vineyard regions, with about a third each coming from Monterey, Sonoma and Santa Barbara. The Monterey fruit contributing ripe stone fruit and a creamy character, the Sonoma grapes bringing crisp apple and a lean minerality and the Santa Barbara grapes bring exotic sweet spice and lively tropical fruit flavours to the blend. Each lot was kept separate in the winery so they could tailor the winemaking techniques to enhance the unique regional nuances. Fermentation took place in French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks, retaining vibrant fruit to contrast against rich, textural oak characteristics. All blend components underwent a malolactic fermentation and some of the wine was aged for about six months in oak. Bright, layered with tropical and stone fruit mixing with notes of honey and butterscotch.
