Arroyo Seco, Monterey
When making Intercept Chardonnay we target bright acidity with a rich mid-palate created by the extended sur lie aging. Made from a single vineyard, our Chardonnay was brought in in the early morning hours and gently pressed. The juice is fermented in barrels (a blend of French and Eastern European, 25% new) and stainless steel. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and aged sur lie for 6 months.
The 2021 Intercept Chardonnay is medium-bodied with spiced apples, citrus, and biscuit notes. Rich from barrel fermentation and sur lie aging, the wine has bright acidity with a lingering toasty oak finish. It pairs well with seafood (salmon, crab, octopus), roasted chicken, and fresh summer salads.
