LARRY CHERUBINO AD HOC ‘Hen and Chicken' Chardonnay, Pemberton 2014$0.00
Big berries, little berries - typical of the bunches out West. Oaked.
THE VINTAGE: The 2014 warm summer cooled off in April, allowing fruit to ripen at a leisurely pace. The Pemberton wine region had an outstanding above average rainfall through the Winter and Spring months. Spring's exceptional conditions allowed the gentle warming and for fruit set. Continuing on with dry and warm days through to April provided excellent quality with incredibly fresh and vibrant wine from the region.
THE WINEMAKING: Fruit was hand picked, whole bunch pressed fermented with natural yeasts and aged in new and two year old French oak prior to bottling.
THE WINE: A pale, beautifully balanced chardonnay with hints of vanilla on the nose and a winning cool climate acidity. Careful oak treatment has resulted in a wine of depth and balance.
DRINK WITH: Seafood & lemon risotto.
