- This 2014 Chardonnay is bright golden straw in color, with aromas of fresh sliced apple and subtle fragrances of banana and beeswax. Ripe apple flavors are consistent throughout, with added notes of baked Bartlett pear and lemon peel on the palate.
- The estate-grown, certified organic grapes are picked at the peak of flavour. They are delivered to the winemaker, who then follows strict CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers) guidelines throughout the winemaking process. At Girasole Vineyards, the wines typically test out at a total sulfite level of between 45-65 ppm. The winemaker also adheres to vegan friendly guidelines when making the Girasole Vineyards wines. This means that no animal products, such as egg-whites, are used in the winemaking process. Special organically-approved yeasts are used to promote the fermentation of the grapes into wine.
