A hugely rich and opulent Chardonnay from California. From the highly regarded Monterey Country, the Slow Press is grown and made slowly -- optmising ripe flavours and then protecting them through a gentle winemaking process. Caramely stone fruit and citrus flavours make the Slow Press a very satisfying Chardonnay for the richer drinker.

Overview

Grape

Chardonnay

Its Origins

As a veteran winemaker, Blake Bomben has a remarkable talent for cultivating some of the best coastal California grapes and turning them into distinguished wines. Gentle handling of the grapes and a slowed fermentation process helps generate the purest, most concentrated fruit character. The result: a rich, yet balanced style with intense flavor.

What The Critics Say

Winemaker notes

"Monterey County delivers a classic Chardonnay with a toasty finish. The Slow Press winemaking process magnifies fruit aromas and delivers notes of fresh apple, lemon, and pear. Slow Press Chardonnay is aged in American Oak barrels for 12 months to develop a full-bodied, creamy mouthfeel. -- Monterey County offers warm days and cool nights, as fog from the Pacific Ocean is funneled in from the bay. This cooler climate is excellent for our Chardonnay, bringing delicious flavor with a healthy acid profile. The winemaking techniques listed below, in conjunction with outstanding fruit helped bring the rich, flavorful finished wine together."

90/100 Wine Enthusiast (2014 vintage)

"This restrained, focused, well priced and crowd-pleasing Chardonnay shows butter, Gravenstein apple, Meyer lemon and almond touches on the nose. On the palate, poached apple fruit is interwoven with lemon and vanilla."
