2014 Alyosius Chardonnay

In this episode of Vine to Wine we experience the 2014 Aloysius Chardonnay. Named after Kym's Dad's nickname. Join Kym and Jamie in the Santa Rita Hills Vineyards of la Rinconada and La Encantada to see where they got the 76 and 96 clones used in the 2014 Aloysius Chardonnay.

The wine is an absolutely delicious lighter style California Chardonnay. Aged 10 months in new and neutral French oak. Lightly golden hued. There are subdued aromas of chalk, vanilla and toast with hints of apples and melon. There is an impression of minerals in the mouth with abundant layers of oak, passion fruit, toast and cream. Nice crisp acidity and soft tannins make a balanced wine to match the light fruitiness and bodes well for aging. The long dry finish makes this a wine for the table and will do especially well with properly paired cuisine and/or a few years in the cellar.
