2016 Chardonnay, ATS

New Release
Winemaker's Notes

Each barrel of our ATS Chardonnay is hand selected to build a wine whose sum is greater than its parts. The 2016 blend is comprised primarily of Old Wente and Dijon clones of Chardonnay. The Old Wente adds a great backbone of stone fruit, lime zest, tangerine and kiwi fruit, while the Dijon brings roundness and floral aromatics to the wine. The combination is an opulent Chardonnay with sleek lines and a long, mineral finish.
