Evoluna - Mendocino

Chardonnay

Vivacous lighter more refreshing wines may be sparkling, white or rosé, and also may be sweet or dry. However, all are on the brighter and tangier end of the flavor spectrum and will never feature oaky flavors.

FOOD PAIRING: Flattering with almost EVERYTHING, but best for RAW & COLD FOODS, LOW-FAT FOODS & SPICY FOODS.

Description

This wine is made from carefully selected Chardonnay grapes grown in prestigious, organically farmed vineyards across Mendocino County. Select lots of Chardonnay were blended to develop complexity before being aged in primarily stainless-steel tanks. A small portion of the wine was aged in seasoned American oak barrels to impart a light oak characteristic. Each lunar phase represents the chance to evolve — to move forward in
sync with Mother Nature. Evoluna wines celebrate this balance, honoring our moon’s connection to the growing cycles in the vineyard and allowing their natural essence to shine.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

Within the North Coast region, the start of the 2022 growing season was marked by favorable weather conditions extending into the early summer months. However, the situation shifted as a prolonged heatwave emerged in late August, hastening the harvesting process and leading to diminished yields for certain grape varieties.
