Tasting Notes: Blood Orange, Almond Praline, Toasted Marshmallow, Dried Apricot
This top tier release Chardonnay from Alpha Omega represents one of the rarest achievements in winemaking: the perfect joining of precision design with pure expression. The production method used is one of minimal interference during early maturation, which allows each of the six Chardonnay clones to retain their individual voice. An 18 month sur-lie in French oak barrels hones and refines them, tuning the many notes together into a single, rapturous harmony. Many layers reveal themselves to the attentive taster, but we remark upon notes of campfire-roasted marshmallow, almond praline, dried apricot, and blood orange.
