The 2016 vintage continues to exist as a worm vintage and is a wine made from retrained and reformed vines planted in the early 1970s. Nearly 80% of this Chardonnay is made up of Celio Vineyard grapes and is well balanced with Gamache Vineyards. The spruce crop results in a more sour, low sugar, and mature taste than usual. No other traditional fruit mix, or any other fruit that has such a strong aroma. Starfruit, white peach and lemon meringue will soak in your heart. The wine is perfected with a slight sourness and will be more relaxed than typical Chardonnay. This vintage is a great achievement for the Worm Vintage with an alcohol content of 14% or less.
