Once Upon a Vine The Fairest Chardonnay is a ripe, fruit-forward, delicately oaked Chardonnay. The harvested grapes are gently pressed into barrel to allow alcoholic fermentation to take place. This allows for better oak integration and imparts a subtle richness and spicy complexity to the wine. The wine is then aged for a 10 months in a blend of French and American oak with occasional lees stirring to add texture and weight to the wine. The resulting wine is marked by aromas of ripe nose of pear, guava, pineapple and creme brulee. Lees stirring and integrated oak lend richness and weight to the fleshy fruit. These flavors linger well into the finish, leaving notes of citrus and spice.

The grapes for this Chardonnay come from the Truchard Vineyard in Carneros, known for its dense, clay-rich soils and a maritime climate that prolongs the growing season. This results in grapes with balanced color, flavor, and acidity. After whole-cluster pressing, the juice was barrel-fermented in French oak and aged sur lie for 10 months, with frequent stirring to enhance richness and complexity. 30% of the blend underwent malo-lactic fermentation, contributing to a creamy mouthfeel. The vineyard's long-term contracts ensure consistency from vintage to vintage, producing a consistently high-quality wine.
