2015 Orient Chardonnany
Fermented in stainless steel with aromas of citrus and more
Stainless steel fermented. No. Oak. Ever. Aromas of citrus oil, lemon blossom and fresh melon. Flavors of green apple, young apricot and ripe cantaloupe. Medium-bodied, pure, crisp, clean and tart. Precise and vibrant finish.
2015 was warm and dry with low humidity. Perfect amounts of rain in July and September. Fruit was universally clean and very ripe. Long Island was blessed with another standout vintage.
