2018 covenant the tribe chardonnay
Luscious Kosher Chard
92 Points Wine Enthusiast Chardonnay!
From Jeff Morgan, legendary kosher winemaker at Covenant Wines comes this Lodi, CA sourced (Mettler Vineyeard) Chardonnay. Whole cluster press prior to flash-detente allows the fruit to display front and center. Barrel-fermented with native yeasts in neutral oak, then 6 months minimum bottle aging. The wine is crisp, with lovely acid supporting a lush-texture of apple, pear and quince flavors.
In scoring this wine a 92 Points, Jim Gordon from Wine Enthusiast Magazine said, “Excellent concentration and a mouthfilling texture create a complex and layered character in this full-bodied wine fermented by native yeast in neutral oak barrels. It exudes scents of toasted almond and buttered popcorn that meet rich flavors of poached pear.”
