Bremerton

Bâtonnage Chardonnay draws its name from the French term for stirring the lees during the aging and maturation of wine.

On the nose this wine shows lifted lemon curd with hints of stone fruit and spice. The palate is expressive and complemented by restrained oak and a creamy mouthfeel. The palate is tempered by a fine acid structure and textural finish giving the wine great length and persistence.
