Sisters Chardonnay is a wine with lifted floral aromas and great length and complexity on the palate. Sisters will reward patience with more complex aromas of white truffle and lifted floral notes to augment the flinty, fresh citrus and peach qualities the wine has in its youth. Named in honor of my mother’ farming and winegrowing family.
Sisters 2019 returns to the stony volcanic soils of the Eola-Amity Hills where the poor basalt-based soils create a complex flavor profile, including floral, mineral, savory and fruity elements. This is a selection of the most refined barrels of Chardonnay in our cellar for the vintage.
Vinification
The grapes were whole-cluster pressed, settled in tank for an average of 24 hours, then barrel fermented with wild yeast and natural acidity in a combination of 25% new 600-liter puncheons and 75% neutral French oak from diverse French coopers. Full malolactic fermentation was completed in each vessel, and after the wine was blended it was put into a closed stainless-steel tank with its lees for 6 months prior to bottling.
2019 Vintage
Winter was again a little dry. Spring rain accumulation helped avoid another drought year providing the vines with water to sustain growth and return to health after the severe drought of 2018. Harvest proceeded with fruit in excellent condition, though there were some rain events that had to be watched.
