Littorai, 2015 Littorai Chardonnay Mays Canyon Vineyard

95
"The 2015 Chardonnay Mays Canyon is a deep, powerful wine. Vertical in its feel, but with great mid-palate richness, the 2015 has it all. The flavors are not at all developed. What comes through is a Chardonnay built on power and structure, with bright acids and exceptional overall balance."

2015 Littorai Chardonnay Mays Canyon Vineyard
Littorai

100% Chardonnay

Mays Canyon is home to the Porter Bass Estate. At 200-400 feet elevation, this site is somewhat unique as it is surrounded by the Russian River on three sides. Skirted by redwood trees, they help keep to form a protective barrier that warms the climate of the vineyard. The Hugo gravelly loam soils also help to capture and retain the heat of the day, offering the vines additional warmth as the fog begins to roll in. Re-planted in 1999, this site has been a vineyard since the late 1800s.

Littorai believes in minimal manipulation of their wines. Thus, almost all of the wines are bottles unfined and unfiltered. It is strongly recommended to let the bottle stand upright 24 hours before opening, as well as decanting off any sediment.
