Sarafin Chardonnay 2013
In the Doluca winery, following a gentle pressing process the juice and sediment of the Chardonnay grapes, known as “the queen of the whites” , are put into small French oak barrels to ferment together in a method known as “sur lie”. Then, the malolactic fermentation process generally used for red wines is applied to lend the resulting wine its “buttery” character, a velvety smoothness. After 12 months aging in 225 lt. French oak barrels the flavours and structure of the wine is maintaned by applying limited filtration before estate bottling. Sarafin Chardonnay has a rich bouquet and complex, lasting flavour on the palate.
