As always, there was no Malo-lactic fermentation and no new oak used in the aging of Waugh Chardonnay. The wine was barrel fermented, in 100% neutral oak and the lees was stirred at minimum once a week, which accounts for its incredible viscosity and creamy mouth feel.
Our 2014 Russian River Valley Chardonnay is an incredibly vibrant mouth-watering wine. Complex and intense, this wine offers aromas of ripe peach and Meyer lemon custard, with notes of sweet vanilla and citrus blossom. On the palate, the fruitful flavors echo the nose with layers of lemon cream and nectarine and an underlying acidity that draws the wine to a clean, crisp finish
