2019 Niner Edna Valley Chardonnay
Niner grows Chardonnay at Jespersen Ranch in the Edna Valley. The vineyard is nestled into a hillside just three miles from the Pacific Ocean and derives much of its personality from the coast.
In 2019, they harvested the grapes in the early morning fog often present at Jespersen Ranch. They are whole-cluster-pressed them and fermented the juice in a combination of barrels and stainless steel tanks. We aged the finished wine in 33% new French Oak barrels for 10 months. A portion of the barrels went through malolactic fermentation to maintain a balance of creamy and bright acidity. Monthly lees stirring developed a lush mouthfeel. The result is a Chardonnay with expressive apple/pear aromatics and a beautifully balanced palate.
