The Vinicultural Society explores clonal selections, varietals and the incredible terroir of Sonoma County. Named for the wife of the Count's son, Arpad, and the daughter of General Mariano Vallejo, Jovita's Selection Chardonnay is harvested from two vineyards, one atop the mountains of Sonoma. The grapes were hand-harvested and whole cluster pressed. Fermentation in open top fermenters with hand punchdowns and lees stirred, the wine was then aged for 14 months in 35% new French Oak before being bottled unfiltered.
The 2013 Jovita's Selection Chardonnay opens with a beautiful bouquet of vanilla, white peach and honeysuckle with refreashing notes of citrus. Upon the palate this wine is full bodied and rich with flavors of pear, graham cracker crust, vanilla adn lemon citrus adds acidity. The 2013 Jovita's Selection Chardonnay is soft and luxurious upon the palate and finishes clean and long.
