Williams Selyem Unoaked Chardonnay 2015

Notes of spiced pear and yellow apple come to the forefront of the
aromatics, and a touch of jasmine adds a wonderful lift to the nose.
Fruit sourced from mature vines provides great acidity and livens
the palate, while balancing the tannin structure. Aged on the
primary yeast in tank, this wine has a developed weight and
texture while being bone-dry. Subtle minerality is apparent on the
nose and palate, and further adds depth and complexity.
THE VINEYARDS
The Chardonnay for this blend was sourced from our Drake Estate
Vineyard, our MacGregor Estate Vineyard, the Simpatico Vineyard,
and the Lazy W Ranch.
It was an auspicious start to the 2017 growing season with steady
rain followed by dry spells which allowed for the soil profile to fill
up progressively. The waterworks kicked into high gear in January
and as the soil dried up, temperatures moderated, and bud break
ensued by mid-March. Steady rain through the vegetative cycle
was balanced with days of brilliant sunshine which helped to grow
green, healthy plants. The weather was very fine in May for the
flowering period and ideal for the fruit set. As the season
progressed, there were periods of heat that occurred with some
regularity. With plenty of water in the soil profile, the plants did
not stress too much and physiological maturity continued at an
accelerated pace. In 2017, the harvest timeframe was compressed
and many of the vineyards were ready in a short period of time.
The process was nearly complete by the time the intense Labor Day
heat wave hit and, thankfully, had concluded before the
devastating wildfires in October. The resulting wines show a
refinement to the tannin structure which will allow for early
consumption but will age gracefully with mid-term cellaring.
Through and through, 2017 is an excellent vintage.
