100% Chardonnay. Crème Sel is hand-harvested for optimum ripeness. Three distinct wines are then barrel fermented in new, 1-year old and neutral barrels before the wine is blended and aged for 18-months in a combination of new and neutral oak. During oak ageing, the wine undergoes battonage (stirring of the lees). The final wine is racked and further bottle aged before release.
Crème Sel has aromas and flavors of apple, citrus blossom and stone fruit that are framed by bright acidity and a saline quality that comes from both the rich limestone soils of the vineyards and their proximity to the French Mediterranean.
