SOLITUDE 2013 CHARDONNAY CARNEROS 750mL

Over the past 20 years, winemaker and founder Richard Litch has been at the helm of Solitude. This Chardonnay has developed a reputation for value and consistency. It has always been a wine that was hard to keep in stock, and after a short-lived hiatus, this rich, full-bodied Chardonnay has come home to roost! Having worked at other wineries known for their Chardonnays (he was at Rombauer and Chalone), Richard knows how to harmonize the yin and yang of Chardonnay; the acidity and the richness.

The 2013 growing season in the Carneros offered near-perfect conditions for producing high quality Chardonnay. The weather was fairly mild all summer with few heat spikes. Warm and dry weather allowed harvest to begin mid-September. Grape crop quality was beautiful, resulting in developing optimal wine flavors.

Layers of oak complement the tropical fruit flavors of the Carneros appellation. Solitude Chardonnay is dry, full and very rich but retains refreshing acidity to keep the wine well balanced. Traditional Burgundian techniques of barrel fermentation, weekly lees stirring and secondary malo-lactic fermentation increase complexity and richness. The wine drinks beautifully in its youth and will gain aromatic and flavor complexity with additional age.
