Provocative 2012 Chardonnay

Produced from select vineyards in the cool climate of the Sonoma Valley, the Provocative 2012 Sonoma Valley Chardonnay offers a nice balance between the heavily oaked, buttery style of Chardonnays and the lighter, crisper, more fruit driven versions. This is achieved by aging half the wine in stainless steal, and the other half in neutral French Oak before blending the two wines together. Golden in color, the Provocative 2012 Chardonnay is medium bodied, crisp, with great fruit character and light oak nuances. [+]
