Bourbon Barrel Aged Chardonnay
2017 Colorado grown Grand Valley AVA Chardonnay aged 10 months in a fresh dumped Distillery 291 Bourbon Barrel. We had some concerns going into this project with the Aspen staves that 291 uses and the bourbon flavors overpowering the wine. We made some adjustments at barreling and crossed our fingers. The result is one of the best Chardonnay's we have ever had...from anywhere. The flavors of the wine and bourbon pair amazingly well. Traditional Chardonnay and bourbon flavors of vanilla, light caramel, citrus complements a nice balance of acid and creamy butter. Bottle is hand etched with only 4 cases produced in this bottling!
