Our Notorious Chardonnay combines the best qualities of a crisp, fruit-driven, unoaked Chardonnay with the butterscotch and vanilla flavors of French oak-aged Chardonnay. We were fortunate enough to get our hands on some outstanding Chardonnay grapes from a sustainably farmed, family vineyard in the Central Coast region of California near Paso Robles. We then aged the wine three ways: one-third in new French Oak, one-third in Neutral oak, and one-third in a stainless steel barrel. We blended between the three barrels and crafted a mere 75 cases of what we think is the perfect Chardonnay. Fermented with the natural yeast present in the vineyard, measured malolactic fermentation, and an equal mix of oaked and unoaked juice, we have created a wine with great complexity, ample minerality, and freshness. It lives up to the name: Notorious.

The must was aged 'sur lie' (on the yeast) while stirring lightly for 10 months before going to bottle. Catch that butterscotch aroma! It is intoxicating. Enjoy with rich pasta dishes chicken, seafood, pork, or butter based sauces. If you want to experiment a bit, some chardonnay friendly spices and herbs include tarragon, Italian flat leaf parsley, thyme, lemon zest, marjoram, white pepper, shallots, and poultry seasoning blends.
