2020 Turbine Chardonnay

2020 Turbine Chardonnay

Introducing our new Turbine Chardonnay! Fresh, lively, and versatile – this wine is perfect for whatever the end-of-summer/fall brings us. Pool-side sipping, or to pair with an elegant meal. Pair with burrata, peach, and tomato salad, gougères, or a warm fall bbq.

I love a stainless steel fermented Chardonnay. It allows for the terroir in the vineyard to sing. This wine is a new and exciting direction for Anaba and I can’t wait for you to try it!

Winemaker Notes

This Chardonnay is extra special. This wine was fermented and aged in stainless steel, leaving the Chardonnay to shine. We wanted to showcase a different style of Chardonnay and show just how dynamic this grape can be. Without the influence of oak, the fruit is the true star.

The Vineyard

For this wine, we sourced from our estate vineyard, The J Mck Vineyard, and from the H. Klopp vineyard. This was the only wine that we made in 2020. We were able to closely monitor the fruit from both vineyards to ensure they were not affected by the fires.
