Chardonnay

Estate Grown

River Junction AVA
California

Light golden straw in color with bright fruit aromas of pear, melon, and peach. The palate is driven by notes of stone-fruit, banana, vanilla, and a hint of buttered popcorn. Rich and decadent, our Chardonnay can be enjoyed on its own or with a delicious meal.

Harvest and Production Notes:
100% of the fruit for our Chardonnay came from McManis’ very own River Junction AVA, located at the confluence of the San Joaquin and Stanislaus Rivers. We generally harvest in August with an average Brix of 24.1. The wine was cold fermented in stainless steel and filtered prior to oak aging. Approximately two thirds of the wine was allowed to go through malolactic fermentation to add complexity and texture.
