The 2021 Select Chardonnay has pleasant fruit aromas with a slightly oaky bouquet. This Chardonnay is aged for 6 months in 100% French-oak barrels, creating a wonderful balance of fresh acidity and a smooth oaky finish. A great pairing with lobster, turkey, or chicken off-the-grill.
Skipping Stone is a blend of Cayuga and Vidal Blanc. Very light in color, this wine is aromatic with a bright floral nose. It has delicious fruit flavors and is refreshing on the palate. It is off-dry with a nice balance of fruit and acidity. Skipping Stone is great by itself with cheese and like the Vidal is superb with spicy food.
Our 2021 vintage is a Ramato-style wine, which is made by allowing the juice to have skin contact prior to fermentation to provide color a normally white wine. Aromatics include guava, passion-fruit, and dried mango, with refreshing flavors of honeysuckle, peach, and apricot. The short grape-skin contact followed by Sur-lees aging lends this wine rich aromatics, with a gently-textured mouthfeel. Fermented and aged in stainless steel.
