Apothic Chard
NEW RELEASE

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.

Apothic White is a refreshingly crisp white wine made from grapes grown in California’s sundrenched vineyards with a small portion from Washington’s cooler terrain. Chardonnay leads the blend, imparting layers of apple and pear. Pinot Gris brightens the blend with hints of nectarine and white flower, while Riesling adds zests of Meyer lemon. Viognier tops the blend with notes of soft apricot. The mouthfeel is soft and round with a touch of toasted vanilla on the finish. <br><br> <b>Viticulture Notes:</b><br> California’s 2020 vintage experienced a cool, mild growing season with an accelerated heat spell in August, resulting in early ripening. Vintage 2020 in California shows vibrant acidity and concentrated flavor. Washington experienced a moderate year, allowing the grapes to ripen on the vines longer, producing exceptional quality. <br><br> <b>Winemaking Notes:</b><br> To retain the natural characteristics of each varietal, we fermented the blend at cool temperatures. The floral varietals were fermented 100% in stainless steel tanks to preserve delicate fruit aromas. Select lots of Chardonnay were fermented and aged on oak before undergoing malolactic fermentation to enhance fruit character and add toasted oak notes.
