TASTING NOTES
 The wine is fermented and aged in French and American oak barrels. The wine is then left on the lees and the barrels are stirred weekly. No secondary, or malolactic fermentation is carried out, leading to a crisp, citrus character of this wine. The wine is bottled after approximately seven months of aging in the cellar.

The finished wine shows citrus, ripe pear and green apple in the nose. Hints of lush white peach are noticed as the wine opens up. The sur-lie aging has added richness and complexity, and a touch of toasty oak returns on the finish. Like all of Keenan’s wines, this Chardonnay is a food worthy wine whose crisp acidity and medium body will accompany a wide variety of food fare.
