2017 Optimism "America, America" Chardonnay

This beautifully balanced wine has aromas of coconut, mineral, citrus, golden delicious apple and toasted cashews, along with hints of nutmeg and all spice. Citrus and apple elements appear on the palate, along with apricot, pineapple, mango and toasty notes. The wine is nicely weighted and can be enjoyed on its own with a wide array of foods.

A combination of Old Wente, Dijon 76 and Dijon 96 from Adastra's CCOF-certified organic vineyard, the 2017 "America, America" was aged in two oak barrels made in Benicia, California, by cooper Tonnellerie O. One barrel was from Missouri-grown oak, the other from Virginia-grown oak. Harvested on September 21, 2017, the wine was barrel fermented and stirred on the lees. It was aged for 15.5 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered on January 18, 2019. Only 43 cases were crafted.
