Ariel Chardonnay

Production Notes:

ARIEL Chardonnay 2016 is a dealcoholized wine made in a sustainable winery in Paso Robles, California. Composed of Chardonnays from the 2014 vintage, with an emphasis on tropical fruit character, ARIEL Chardonnay is fermented cold in stainless steel cooperage and small French oak barrels.

Once fermentation is complete, it is blended before undergoing more oak barrel aging. Just prior to bottling, the alcohol is gently removed by cold filtration, leaving less than 0.5% alcohol by volume.

Winemaker Comments:

ARIEL Chardonnay 2014 has a distinctive combination of buttery apple and butterscotch characteristics, combined with a toasty French oak bouquet. This nonalcoholic wine should continue to develop complexity as it ages. Enjoy ARIEL Chardonnay with richer seafoods, veal, duck and cream pasta dishes.
