2016 Folktale Coast View Chardonnay
25% New French Oak
This Chardonnay opens beautifully with strong floral notes, along with tropical fruit, light banana, and toasted pie crust. On the palate, the traditional Chardonnay “butter” flavor is there, and balanced nicely with crisp flavors of green apple. A lasting apricot finish will leave you reaching for more.
Coast View Vineyard
The striking Coast View Vineyard sits at 2400’ elevation in the Gabilan Mountains in Monterey County, with a gorgeous view of the Monterey Bay. Vines here stay cool throughout the summer, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly to fully develop their fruit forward flavor and clean, natural acidity. The Coast View Vineyard fruit was hand harvested 9/2/16 at dawn. Once at Folktale, the Chardonnay was lightly pressed and sent to tank to settle for 48 hours before being transferred to barrel to ferment. The wine was racked to tank 6/30, blended, then chilled to 28F. Once cold stable, the Chardonnay was filtered and bottled 7/31/17.
