Product Description

Celebrate the coming winter months with the 2017 DeMayo Chardonnay, whose nose embodies the archetypal grandmother’s kitchen. Pound cake, baked cinnamon apple and almond creme aromas complement this creamy Chardonnay, but don’t expect a total butterball. The 2017 has an impressively long finish, and this vintage’s acidity graces its palate with structure, length, and the crisp flavors of a granny smith apple. Just as with last year, the increased use of French oak and inclusion of the Hoffman block shift the palate toward orchard fruit, but we predict its juicy tropical aromatics to emerge with time. 

Ready to drink now but will evolve with proper cellaring through 2023.

Vineyard Notes
Located just a stone's throw from my Livermore art studio, the DeMayo Vineyard receives ample sunlight, brisk winds, and rolling fog from the San Francisco Bay. The 2017 vintage was gently whole-cluster pressed and 100% barrel-fermented in a combination of French and American oak, with regular stirring of the less.

Another beautifully balanced chardonnay from DKV! The orchard fruit really shines here, and the oak influence is nicely complemented by the fresh acidity.
