Amista 2013 Chardonnay

Amista 2013 Chardonnay


Take me to current releases


Our 2013 Chardonnay has notes of fresh aromas of honeysuckle and stone fruit with hints of delicate orange blossom. The beautiful fruit notes continue onto the palate with white peach, a touch of passion fruit and a hint of wet stone. The mouthfeel is broad and full with a gentle acidity to finish it all out. This wine showcases how beautiful Chardonnay can be.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
If 2012 was thought to be the perfect vintage, then 2013 really blew our minds. The year started out with a dry winter, but high spring rains added to the water table just in time. The summer was hot, but even without any major heat spikes. Harvest came a bit early (or closer to normal) than the previous years.

Winemaker Notes
We picked our Chardonnay grapes in the early morning hours and hand sorted in the vineyard first before bringing them to the winery and gently whole-cluster pressing. The juice settled for 24 hours in tank before going down to all neutral barrels, where, we used 4 different types of yeast. After fermentation, the barrels were topped up and put through malolactic fermentation. The wine was kept on the lees until a few weeks before bottling.
