THE JOURNEY

A portion of the wine was fermented in oak barrels, lending a creamy texture to the wine. Quintessential Chardonnay notes of pear and baked apple are layered over a thread of tropical fruit, courtesy of a touch of Viognier in the blend. In signature 1000 Stories fashion, this Chardonnay was aged in traditional French and American oak, with a portion finished in seasoned bourbon barrels before the final blend was assembled.

THE WINE

Our 2019 Chardonnay reflects the classic California style: fuller bodied, richly textured and brimming with lush fruit flavors. Fresh notes of pear, pineapple and peach dominate the palate, framed by a baked-apple richness and a creamy mouthfeel. Bourbon barrel aging weaves a warm thread of dried herbs and cedar in the glass, culminating in a vanilla-caramel finish.
