2017 Wild Boar Chardonnay
Since 2013, we’ve been producing Chardonnay under our Wild Boar Cellars label, and as such, this is now our fifth bottling and release of this wine! It is 100% Chardonnay sourced entirely from the Carter Mountain Vineyard in Charlottesville, VA. Like previous vintages, the general winemaking considerations are inspired and driven by the way in which our Estate Chardonnay is handled: a restraint/subtle use of oak, ripe yet balanced fruit flavors, and vibrant acidity. To achieve this, the wine was fermented and aged in neutral oak vessels (90% upright oak vat; 10% in 228L barrels) for approximately 5 months. This is truly the ‘goldilocks’ Chardonnay with regards to its flavor profile!
