You won’t be disappointed.  <br><br> <b>About the Wine</b><br> The 2021 Apothic White is a vibrant blend of four varietals grown from California and Washington state. Chardonnay leads the blend while Pinot Gris, Riesling and Viognier add fragrant aromas and complexity. Layers of green apple, lemon zest and tree-ripened apricot open to a palate layered with notes of white peach and vanilla undertones. The finish is bright and crisp. <br><br> <b>Viticulture Notes</b><br> Ongoing drought conditions throughout California caused a slight reduction in crop size in 2021. Mild summer conditions allowed the fruit to take its time ripening and developing optimal flavor concentration. Washington state experienced some prolonged heat spells, which also caused a slight drop in crop size. Harvest in both viticultural regions produced yields of high-quality grapes with excellent quality. <br><br> <b>Winemaking Notes</b><br> To retain the natural characteristics of each varietal, we fermented the blend at cool temperatures. The Pinot Grigio, Viognier and Riesling were fermented 100% in stainless steel tanks to preserve delicate fruit aromas. Select lots of Chardonnay were fermented and aged on oak to add a touch of vanilla before undergoing malolactic fermentation to enhance fruit character.
Apothic Chard

sale price $11.99
Our appealing Apothic Chardonnay opens with generous notes of crisp red and green apple, layered with hints of honey, caramel and vanilla. Viognier in the blend adds intriguing aromatic floral and tropical fruit characteristics. This luscious wine offers a silky-smooth texture and a bright, lively finish. <br><br> <b>Viticulture Notes:</b><br> We selected the majority of the grapes for Apothic Chardonnay from the unique Lodi Delta region in California. With its cool evenings and warm days, Lodi is known as a producer of fragrant, concentrated and silky textured fruit. California’s 2021 growing season was cool and mild, with a heat spell in August that resulted in an earlier than average harvest. Wines showcase vibrant acidity and concentrated flavors.  <br><br> <b>Winemaking Notes:</b><br> We harvested a majority of the grapes for our Apothic Chardonnay at night in cool temperatures to preserve the character of the fruit. The fruit was whole-cluster pressed, then the juice settled and was racked to tank to optimize clarity and mouthfeel. The Chardonnay underwent partial malolactic fermentation and was fermented on selected oak with sur lie aging, enhancing the wine’s delicate fruit flavors while adding subtle caramel, cream and spice characteristics. A portion of the Chardonnay and Viognier were fermented in stainless-steel tanks.
