Tasting Notes:

This unoaked Chardonnay displays Fox Run Vineyards’ trademark subtle melon, lemon and white nectarine aromas. In the mouth, this wine reveals its cool climate birthplace: the mouthfeel is creamy, but not leaden, due to bright acidity and moderate alcohol. It’s fresh and flavor-packed, with no distracting oak flavors.

Vineyard Notes:

Vineyard Site: Doyle Vineyards-Seneca Lake. One of the oldest Chardonnay plantings in New York State. The 2016 growing season was the driest in recorded history in the Finger Lakes. The abundant sunshine made for some very happy vines, even if they were a bit parched. Judicious applications of water helped things enormously, but the real breakthrough happened in mid-August, when the skies finally opened up enough to give our grapes enough to let them ripen the crop fully.

Production Notes:

Grapes were picked in the early morning and transported to our crush pad. The fruit was crushed and pressed, settled, racked and inoculated with our favorite yeast strains. Fermentation lasted five weeks. Prior to bottling, a small amount on Traminette wine was blended in to add lifted fruit notes and a hint of sweetness.

Food Pairing:

Enjoy this Chardonnay with Fox Run's FLX Duck Paté: House-made pâté served with whole-grain Riesling mustard, pickled vegetables and fresh baked baguette.
