Tessier 2020 Skin Contact Chardonnay Camino Alto Vineyard, El Dorado
From the Camino Alto vineyards in El Dorado, this Chardonnay has 4 days of skin contact during fermentation. The result is a California Chardonnay with a hazy look, rounded mouthfeel, some fruit, and a nice dry finish. A vibrant note of yellow pear and hints of peach along with the skin contact, give the wine an almost juicy mouthfeel. The drier finish does not allow the juiciness to become sweet, it does allow the yellow pear characteristic to linger after long after your sip.
