2017 Prescription Chardonnay
Prescription Vineyards Clarksburg Chardonnay
September 18, 2017
95% Malolactic, 100% stainless steel tank
Lively aromatics of high toned citrus, lemon peel, tropical fruits and fresh cream lead into a refreshing and mouthwatering palate. Flavors of guava, papaya, key lime and crème brulée flow throughout a long, smooth, mineral laced finish.
100% Chardonnay sourced from James Reamer in Clarksburg, CA. 100% Stainless Steel Tank fermented with oak treatment. Single appellation, single grower.
Prescription Vineyards is a project born out of a mutual respect between a grower and winemaker. Our winemaker, Rob Lloyd, worked with James Reamer for a number of years on other projects. During this time, it became apparent that his grapes and Rob’s style of wine are a perfect match. Rob likes making big, rich Chardonnays and James grows bold Chardonnay grapes. Also, they both enjoy drinking this style of wine. It was natural for them to work together again. Aged in 100% stainless steel tanks, the 2017 vintage celebrates this partnership.
