2012 Keenan Chardonnay, Spring Mountain District, 750mL

SKU CH12T

2012 Keenan Chardonnay Napa Valley, Spring Mountain District


Keenan's 2012 Chardonnay was hand harvested, de-stemmed, then gently pressed. The juice was fermented and aged in French and American oak barrels. The wine was left on the lees and the barrels were stirred weekly.  No secondary, or malolactic fermentation was carried out, leading to the crisp, citrus character of this wine.  The wine was bottled after approximately seven months of aging in the cellar.

The finished wine shows citrus, ripe pear and green apple in the nose. Hints of lush white peach are noticed as the wine opens up. The sur-lie aging has added richness and complexity, and a touch of toasty oak returns on the finish. Like all of Keenan’s wines, this Chardonnay is a food worthy wine whose crisp acidity and medium body will accompany a wide variety of food fare.
