Badger Mountain NSA Organic Chardonnay

Regular price $11.99

With layered aromas of tropical fruits such as pineapple, banana and mango, with a slight touch of plantain on the nose, this chardonnay explodes with a great diversity of flavors on the palate. From Golden Delicious apples, to tropical fruits, this wine is very balanced with a nice touch of acidity on the bright, long finish.

Organic grapes for the NSA Chardonnay are harvested at night to take advantage of the cooler temperatures. Bringing in the fruit cold ensures higher quallity and assists in the prevention of fermentation from wild yeast. The Chardonnay from the Estate Vineyard was harvested on the 28th of September with a brix level of 21.5. The Arete Vineyard was harvested a few weeks later on the 18th of October with a brix level of 24.5. Because of the bright fruit character of these great vineyard sites, we used the 796 yeast strain on both lots to round out the mouthfeel. All of the grapes were fermented in stainless steel upright fermenters with no malolactic fermentation taking place to retain the nice, racy fruit flavors and maintain the natural, bright acidity.
