Unionville Home Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

Produced from our oldest vines, located right here at the estate vineyard in Ringoes. Barrel fermented and barrel aged, with aromas of lime oil, wet stone, and citrus flowers. Structurally beautiful- mouth filling yet airy. This wine is sweet and bright, flavors following the aromas. It's hard to put the glass down. A long finish of sweet lime with traces of vanilla. Favorite pairings include classic roasting turkey with stuffing, herb crusted halibut, chiken picatta and poached salmon with caper-butter sauce. This wine will age gracefully 5-10 years gaining richness and elegance. 

 

Regarding the Unionville Home Vineyard and Mountain Road Vineyard Chardonnays: The beauty is how intensely location, soil, and slope differences affect wines. Both wines are made from the same variety of white grape: Chardonnay. However, each is produced solely from grapes harvested from one single vineyard. Unionville Home Vineyard is sloped slightly northeast; the soil is clay loam and decomposing shale. Mountain Road Vineyard has a steep south-facing slope and a calcareous gravelly soil. Taste the difference between these wines and explore the concept of terroir.
