2015 Knights Bridge Chardonnay Pont de Chevalier

2015 Knights Bridge Chardonnay Pont de Chevalier

This elegant wine abounds with aromas of ripe Bosc pear, honeydew melon, vanilla bean and toasted oak. Well integrated flavors of graham cracker, stone fruits, and hints of sweet baking spices enliven the palate. The wine is sumptuous and rich, with a seamless entry and a lingering, silky finish. 

Destined to pair with fine dishes, our Pont de Chevalier Chardonnay is a perfect accompaniment for pasta carbonara with lemon zest, lobster macaroni-and-cheese, or warm burrata with honey and a fresh baguette.

For some, the growing season of 2015 was one of the most challenging in recent years. At Knights Bridge, our east-facing, hillside vineyards in Knights Valley are cooler and protected by the surrounding terrain, allowing our fruit to thrive despite an unpredictable season. Rewarded with a warm and consistent summer, our Chardonnay enjoyed long hang-time, producing rich, luscious fruit. 

Each of the select blocks chosen for the Pont de Chevalier Chardonnay is hand-picked at optimum ripeness. Harvested in the pre-dawn hours on a handful of days from September 2 to September 17, the grapes were whole-cluster pressed and the juice was allowed to fully settle before fermentation. The wine was racked clean to 60% new French oak and 40% previously used French oak barrels. Full malolactic fermentation was encouraged, adding a subtlety to the aromas and texture of the wine. The wine aged in barrel for 10 months before bottling.
