pear, toast, and cream
Made in the Burgundy tradition, this barrel fermented Chardonnay exhibits classic notes of pear, toast, cream, and hay. The palate is rich and full-bodied with structure from nine months of aging in French oak barrels (33% new). Unique to Antietam Creek Vineyards is the inclusion of another Burgundy variety – Pinot Noir. For 2016, this comprises 17% of the blend. 33% of this wine was put through malolactic fermentation.
