Enfield Wine Co. 2019 Chardonnay Citrine, California
Citrine is a gemstone of yellow quartz. This Chardonnay is made with eh intensional of balancing golden California sun and a gentle kiss of minerality. This wine comes from 4 different vineyards all with an average age of almost 40 years old! The grapes were gently whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented with native yeasts and went through full malolactic fermentation then aged on its own lees for 12 months in barrel, then blended and bottled unfined and unfiltered. This wine sreally shows the golden sunshine we get here in California. A wine full of tropical fruits and floral aromatics with sticking acid and subtle creaminess. Juicy, mineral and a little bit of salinity with a wave of savory on the finish. This wine gives off a sense of finesse, intense but not heavy.
