Winemaking & Tasting Notes
Our winemaking focuses on expressing the citrus and mineral qualities of the wine, eschewing the more tropical notes that can dominate super-ripe Chardonnay. The Louis Latour barrels do an excellent job of pulling those desirable citrus and mineral characteristics out of the wine, and the new wood complements the juice well.
The final blend of the 2021 Pulido~Walker Estate Chardonnay is predominately Wente, which contributes big bursts of sea spray and citrus fruits. This dynamic fruit is nicely tempered by the small percentage of Montrachet that brings pressed flowers, beeswax, and lanolin—classic attributes of Chardonnay that add complexity in smaller quantities. Rounding out the blend, the Robert Young Clone continues to add cut hay, white chocolate, and more citrus fruits.
