2017 Eyrie Original Vines ChardonnayUdsolgt
The Chardonnay Original Vines is a barrel selection. Since each barrel ferments with its own yeast and ages at its own rate, each barrel becomes very distinct. Before bottling, Jason tastes each barrel. Those barrels which speak to the longest aging potential become the Original Vines Reserve. Old vines give the wine a distinctly direct connection to the mineral underlayment of the soil. Firm acidity complements a richly textured mid-palate spiked with notes of flowers and sea grass.
