Our premium Chardonnay grapes were gently pressed and laid to rest in neutral burgundy oak barrels where they went through their fermentation process. Layne used a winemaking method called Bâtonnage. this is the process of stirring in the lees(sediment from yeast and grapes)while still in their respective barrel. Bâtonnage methods are used to extract flavor, aroma, and texture. A bouquet of baked apples, caramel, and cinnamon swirl out of the glass and into the air, the palate is a lovely round mouthfeel with lingering notes of toasty brioche, fresh apple, and minerality resulting in a clean, crisp finish.
