Layer Cake's approach to Chardonnay is one of non-intervention, allowing the fruit and the place to speak for itself, and then layering in techniques to bring it to its fullest potential. They let the grapes develop fully, which in their vineyards means concentrated and complex layers of fruit, heady evocative aromatics and the perfect balance of flavor. They ferment in stainless steel at low temperatures to preserve the intense, complex aromatics, and then age certain lots in 3-year old, air-dried French oak to accentuate and balance the concentrated fruit, adding another layer of complexity with the subtle, high-quality oak.
The result is a rich wine, but with clean, pure layers of flavors and aromatics. The nose is reminiscent of Meyer lemons, preserved then diced up later in the year, wet stones and lime blossoms waft in and out as well. The wine builds in body and texture as it sits in your mouth. Layers of Kaffir lime, guava and pineapple pour in at first, and then the light creamy texture of whipped lemon curd fills in. The finish is clean and crisp, lingering enough to make you want another sip.
