2016 MCM Wine Co. Marveluxe Chardonnay – Yakima Valley
We present to you a totally new Chardonnay from MCM Wine Company that explores two exciting vineyards from Zillah, Washington. The grapes were raised by viticulturist Patrick Rawn who manages both Morrison and Copeland Vineyards. The vines from Morrison are 30+ years old and producing light crop loads packed with richness while Copeland Vineyard shows similar fruit on 15-year-old vines. The wine was naturally fermented in new and seasoned French oak barrels and Flextank HD and kept on the lees with regular early stirring. ML is complete and adds to the depth.
