Saddleback Chardonnay 2018
Our steel-fermented Chardonnay
Chardonnay is known as a versatile grape that can be expressed in many different styles. At Veritas we make two: a barrel-fermented Chardonnay called Harlequin which is aged for six months in new French and American oak and its counterpart, Saddleback.
Pale gold in color, Saddleback Chardonnay is a crisp wine with precise fruit flavors and an almost austere minerality that is counter-balanced by the full mouthfeel from lees aging. Saddleback is full of flavors of fresh fruit salad brimming with apples, pears and luscious white melon.
