M&J Becker Chardonnay 2016 (California, USA) "...rich, vanilla, mineral..."
Manchester Ridge Vineyard is perched at 2500 ft. elevation and 3 miles from the coast. The growing season is moderated by the cool maritime breezes which allows the fruit a long hang time for flavor development and ripeness.
Made from of three clones of Chardonnay, basket pressed and native fermented in neutral barriques for 12 months. This wine captures the vibrancy of this stunning coastal vineyard.
