Shafer Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch 2011

Shafer Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch 750ML 2011       
Sku: A126835

Red Shoulder Ranch® Chardonnay is a single-vineyard wine produced from grapes grown in the Carneros appellation. Shafer’s Red Shoulder Ranch vineyard is planted to five different Chardonnay clones selected for their small clusters, low yields and distinctive flavors. The wine is fermented using the yeasts that grow wild in Carneros, which adds an extra dimension of complexity. It is spared malolactic fermentation in order to retain abundant natural flavors and acidity. The wine remains in barrel for 15 months, with the lees stirred weekly by hand to create a rich, creamy texture.

The 2011 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch has a similar aromatic and flavor profile as the 2010 with more textural richness and oiliness because of the presence of botrytis in this vintage. I have to say, the 2011 is highly intriguing. It will be interesting to see where the wine goes over the coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2017.

A huge Chardonnay, so full-bodied and rich, it’s almost like a red wine, but that’s the Red Shoulder personality. With buttercream, jammy tropical fruit, orange custard, vanilla, buttered toast and brown sugar flavors, it would be over the top, except for vibrant acidity and a deep minerality. Drink now-2017.
