Tasting NotesThe 2010 is a textbook example of Natural yeast fermented Burgundian-Style Chardonnay. Ferment continued for 8 months, requiring bottling to be delayed until after harvest 2011. This brought out the pear, tangerine, and caramel side of White Rock. Still floral and extremely complex, there is a creamy citrus density to the midpalate. The finish shows lemon, fine oak and just a hint of butterscotch ending perfectly dry and with a harmonious acidity.
