Description

Matt Lioco's wines have always been clean and well balanced, showing true varietal character. This 2017 Estero Chardonnay is another such wine with citrus, especially lemon, undertones and a bit o' honey on the crisp finish. He fermented the wine on its lees for 9 months in large, neutral oak casks then settled it in stainless steel for one month followed by a 'cross-flow' filtration before bottling. Here, he explains the meaning behind the name, "Estero was named after the river-born waterways that shape the Russian River Valley vineyards. It is a blend of three prized sites—all dry-farmed and featuring Old Wente clones. Vintage 2017 saw historically low grape yields and wines with immense concentration. Despite our restrained house style, the character of the vintage is undeniable: gob smacking deliciousness—the result of scarce and tiny grape clusters. Ripe Eureka lemon, honeycomb, fennel pollen, saffron, and crushed rocks all play a role in this dramatic thriller of a wine."
