"HANGTIME Chardonnay from Edna Valley were on the vine for a minimum of 140 days. Cool evenings and slow, steady ripening produced concentrated flavors in the grapes leaving Tony Coltrin, our winemaker, the perfect canvass for a lively Chardonnay. The wine was barrel fermented and went through partial malolactic fermentation creating layers of fresh, crisp fruit balanced by creamy, round notes. Aging the wine sur lie for 8 months in French oak, 33% new barrels, also added to the creamy taste and texture. Overall, the wine explodes with flavors of green apple and baked pears with a finish of toasted creme brulee. "
