This wine will improve in the bottle for 2 to 4 years post bottling.
The wine is bottled in late winter and is ready to drink after one or two years of bottle age. 63% Riesling and 37% Vidal. 12.1% alcohol.
This 2012 Linden Chardonnay is primarily comprised of the Avenius Chardonnay and some declassified Hardscrabble Chardonnay barrels.
This is the last vintage of Linden’s Seyval.
The goal of winemaking with Sauvignon Blanc is to retain the fresh, wild, pungent character of the grape, but also showcasing textural weight and complexity that comes from the Avenius site.
