Oak Ridge Winery Maggio California Chardonnay 2019

A creamy Californian Chardonnay displaying rich vanilla
notes combined with tropical fruits and pineapple.
Producer Note
For five generations the Maggio family has been growing wine grapes in Lodi, and
providing elite California winemakers with superb fruit to make their wines. In 2002, the
family turned their own hand to winemaking, using the same estate grown fruit that
they had sold for so many years. Now they proudly put their name on bottles that
reflect their long and uncompromising commitments to sustainable agriculture and
winemaking excellence.
Vintage
Rain during the early part of the growing season increased mildew pressure in the
vineyard, however, the summer warmed up and the mildew threat dried up. The
weather provided excellent conditions for the 2019 harvest in California. The summer
was relatively mild and the warm, with the warm, dry weather continuing into the
autumn and creating perfect conditions for harvest. Overall, yields were slightly lower
than the 2018 bumper crop, but the fruit created beautifully balanced wines with bright
expression.
Vineyard
The estate covers 500 acres of vineyards throughout the Lodi American Viticultural Area,
which are situated between the Sierra Nevada foothills and the San Francisco Bay. The
Chardonnay grapes are grown in the Delta region, west of Lodi, which has a slightly
cooler climate than central Lodi, both day and night. This gentle Mediterranean
climate of warm days and coastal evening breezes is ideal for the cultivation of worldclass grapes. The mature vines are gnarled and sculpted by time, yielding small
amounts of intensely flavoured fruit to create wines that are the ultimate expression of
their terroir.
Winemaking
The Chardonnay grapes were harvested at 23 to 24° Brix, when they had reached
optimal ripeness and balancing acidity levels. The grapes were cool fermented in
stainless steel tanks at 10 to 12°C with selected yeasts, to preserve the fresh and bright
fruit characteristics. The wine did not go through malolactic conversion to retain the
crisp character. Delicate oak influence imparted subtle complexity and a creamier
texture.
Tasting Note
This vibrant Chardonnay delivers fruity aromas of peach, mango, pineapple and
melon. Beautifully balanced on the palate, with refreshing citrus flavours through to a
long finish.
