2013 Estate Reserve Chardonnay

2013 Estate Reserve Chardonnay
2013 Estate Reserve Chardonnay

The first bottling from estate Chardonnay vines, the 2013 Estate Reserve was pressed straight into barrels (one stainless steel, one new oak, and six neutral oak, for a total of about 190 cases). This wine shows aromas of green and yellow apple, lemon, and hints of white pepper. As the wine opens up, faint oak aromas develop, but it retains beautiful citrus flavors and pretty, lemony acidity.

An ideal chardonnay to sip on a summer afternoon, or to serve with a roast chicken with butter and herbs rubbed under the skin, or a white bean hummus with rosemary and lemon. To be released summer 2016.

Robert Brittan left Stags’ Leap Winery in Napa after 16 years as Winemaker and Estate Manager to fulfill his dream of making Pinot Noir and Syrah from unique sites in cooler climates. His winemaking career began in his dorm room at Oregon State University, where he was a physics and philosophy major.

Being both geeky and broke, he soon realized that alcohol was an attractant to co-eds, so he began his career in fermentation sciences in order to get a date. He ultimately completed his education at UC Davis and moved to Napa Valley, where he made wines for Far Niente, Saint Andrews and Stags’ Leap Winery.

With over 40 years of experience growing grapes and making wine, he brings a significant amount of viticultural and winemaking knowledge to Brittan Vineyards. He has always had a passion for Pinot Noir, and hopes that with the fruit from the Brittan estate vineyard in the foothills of the Coastal Range, he can bring a new voice to the McMinnville AVA, and help form the style and definition of Pinot Noir from this recently designated winegrowing region.
