Shadow Point Chardonnay

Shadow Point Chardonnay

Boutinot has been working with growers in California for over 10 years, finessing our offering from vintage to vintage, increasingly with specific estates sourcing old vine material and site-specific fruit.

From vineyards in California’s Central Coast region. The Chardonnay vineyard has its own AVA, San Bernabe and sits next to a chain of hills which separate the vineyards from the Pacific coast. The name Shadow Point relates to the shadows which form over the vineyard as the setting sun falls in the west, behind the neighbouring hills.

Vineyards

Fruit comes from a vineyard in Monterey, California’s Central Coast region. The Chardonnay vineyard has its own AVA, San Bernabe and sits next to a chain of hills which separate the vineyards from the Pacific coast. Chardonnay benefits from the cooler evenings this region enjoys helping to maintain natural freshness.

Vinification

After careful selection fruit is pressed gently in a bladder press before fermentation in stainless steel. 20% of the blend is aged for 6 months in new and used French oak.

Tasting Notes

This is a modern CA Chardonnay, on the nose there is an appealing salinity over toasted hazelnut aromas. The palate has a stone fruit and struck match structure to it that gives it a gentle minerality.

This wine wants buttery chicken, pork tenderlion or a mushroom stroganoff.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
