Steele Cuvée Chardonnay 2015

SKU 705


We ferment the majority our Cuvee in barrel (20% new) and age the wine sur-lie for about eight months. The exception is our Lolonis fruit which is fermented in stainless steel and then barrel aged for four months. Each vineyard contributes to the wine. The Santa Maria vineyards add a tropical character to the wine, flavors and aroma of mango, pineapple, and papaya. The Sonoma vineyards attribute citrus character and acid to the Cuvée. The Mendocino vineyard, Lolonis, has a flavor profile that leans toward apples aromas of apple crisp and cinnamon. Halibut with a white wine burre blanc sauce would complement the complex flavors of the Cuvée Chardonnay nicely.
