Littorai Mays Canyon Chardonnay
|Availability:||Out of stock|
Mays Canyon is home to the Porter Bass Estate. At 200-400 feet elevation, this site is somewhat unique as it is surrounded by the Russian River on three sides! Skirted by redwood trees, they help keep to form a protective barrier that warms the climate of the vineyard. The Hugo gravelly loam soils also help to capture and retain the heat of the day, offering the vines additional warmth as the fog begins to roll in. Re-planted in 1999, this site has been a vineyard since the late 1800s!
This wine is much tighter than the Sonoma Coast Chardonnay. Aromas of green apple, lime, rainwater, honey, fennel, fern leaf, and linden tea are all present. While the acidity shines in this wine there is a beautiful silky quality to the midpalate which will please those who like their chardonnay with a bit more viscosity and richness. This wine also has a lovely, slightly phenolic (tannin-like) textural quality which gives it lots of definition. This is classic Littorai Chardonnay.
