La Mariposa- Chardonnay

La Mariposa

La Mariposa– Our 2019 Chardonnay embodies the spirit of the butterfly. Barrel fermented and barrel aged in neutral oak, the natural malolactic fermentation imparts the buttery flavor found in a traditional Chardonnay but it is light bodied and delicate like its namesake. Harvested from Tucker’s Vineyard in Pearce, AZ after a series of heavy monsoon storms that knocked out the trellises, this wine is also a testament to the endurance of its grapes.

Harvest Date: August 7th 2019.
