Harvest and Production Notes
100% of the fruit for our 2018 Chardonnay came from McManis’ very own River Junction AVA, located at the confluence of the San Joaquin and Stanislaus Rivers. The vineyards here sit below the waterline most of the year, resulting in temperatures 2-5 degrees cooler than the surrounding area and a more prominent diurnal temperature swing. Perfect for growing quality Chardonnay.
McManis Family Vineyards harvested between August 13th – September 20th, 2018 with an average Brix of 24.1. The wine was cold fermented in stainless steel and filtered prior to oak aging. Approximately two-thirds of the wine was allowed to go through malolactic fermentation to add complexity and texture.
