AdeleChardonnay Sonoma Coast
Chardonnay from California, United States
Fermented two thirds in new and used French oak barrels, while the rest is fermented in stainless steel to maintain the bright freshness of the fruit. During its 8 month élèvage, the wine sees some bâtonnage, adding richness and texture. The result is a full-bodied but not overblown crowd-pleaser.
