Westcott Vineyards Chardonnay 2020
- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: Westcott Vineyards is an artisanal 3,500 case winery owned and operated by the Westcott/Hurst family. Carolyn Hurst and her husband Grant Westcott started the adventure in 2006 acquiring the vineyards as a new chapter in their lives; a simple way to transition from very successful management consulting, senior civil servant and information technology backgrounds. Their original plan was to live in wine country and grow grapes – a modest thought.
WINEMAKING: Fruit sourced from both Westcott Home Farm and Butlers' Grant. Hand picked and whole bunch pressed. No sulphur added at time of crushing. Barrel fermented and aged (10 months). 100% wild yeast and partial malolactic fermentation.
TASTING NOTES: The 2020 Estate Chardonnay presents notes of sweet golden apple, pear and toasty vanilla. Rich and creamy on the palate with well balanced acidity and a lengthy finish. This Chardonnay is a delight to drink.
