Bogle Chardonnay 750ml
Bogle Chardonnay is the epitome of a hand-crafted wine: harvested by hand and whole cluster pressed, half of the grapes go directly into stainless steel tanks to retain their crisp, fresh nature. The other half are fermented in new American oak, where they age on the lees for 8 months, with monthly stirring. The finished wine is blended together just before bottling, bringing together a complex yet delightful wine.
Green apple and pear aromas classically characterize this wine as Clarksburg, while honeycomb and vanilla heighten the first impression. The rich, round entry rolls into a viscous and silky mouthfeel, surrounded by Asian pears and Honeycrisp apples. The finish lingers long and soft, like the wafting aromas of grandma’s warm apple pie.
This Bogle wine is certified sustainable by the California Rules for Sustainable Winegrowing and proudly bears the symbol on the label.
This full-bodied wine tastes bold and oaky, from the aroma of buttered toast to ripe apple flavors shaded by baking spices, butter and hints of wood smoke. It has good acidity to keep it lively, and will appeal especially to fans of big Chardonnay. JIM GORDON-Wine Enthusiast
