Hand harvested, the whole clusters were slowly and gently pressed over a period of several hours to extract Chardonnay’s signature bright, fruity and floral character without a hint of bitterness.

 

Tasting -  True to form, the Red Hen Vineyard, which is located just south of our estate, continues to produce bright, fruit forward aromas of pear, apple and tropical melon that go hand-in-hand with the light citrus notes.  The palate yields tasty green apple with creamy layers of honeydew and Crenshaw melon, and pear.  The wine finishes with lingering flavors of fresh cut white peach.

SHIPPING WINE IN HOT WEATHER

Shipping wine during hot weather can spell disaster for wine.  Ideology Cellars prefers and recommends not shipping wines during the months of June – September.  However, if you really can’t wait for cooler weather, we can arrange overnight or 2-day air.  In the case of extreme hot temperatures, shipments may be delayed to protect your wine.
