Description

Francis Coppola Director's Chardonnay is sourced from vineyards throughout Sonoma County, representing a range of climates, soil profiles and clonal selections. This diversity yields a complex and intriguing wine and allows for nuances in blending. The fruit is harvested in the early morning hours and whole-cluster pressed. A large percentage of the wine is then barrel fermented to achieve richness and bring out notes of vanilla and spice. The remaining wine is fermented in stainless steel for a touch of vibrant acidity, which helps create a beautiful balance. The wine also undergoes partial malolactic fermentation for a creamy mouthfeel.
