A warm, buttery glow sparkles in the goblet of our 2019
Chardonnay. We at Damiani Wine Cellars have long
made it our business to make a classic old-world style
Chardonnay and this vintage doesn’t disappoint. Buttery
is the word of the day as this Chard evinces aromas of
savory hand-churned butter and butter cream, along with
sage and a crisp minerality--think rain on hot slate. The
palate is lingering and coats the tongue: tart fresh orchard
fruits, layer with a creamy and French oak, vanilla focused
presence. A strong and lasting, structured finish makes this
wine an equal for all traditional Chardonnay food pairings.
Open, savor, enjoy! Cheers!

Growing Conditions

Winter of 2018-19 was pretty mild, resulting in little to no
bud damage and setting us up for a good year of growing to
come. 2019 started with a pretty “by the books” finger lakes
spring, with an on-time start to the growing season; no late
frosts to hassle us and a reasonable amount of rainfall. The
growing season was warm but not hot, with moderate rain
which tapering off by the fall to a nice mild harvest season.
The weather cooperated well and allowed the vines to
achieve full ripeness and flavor development. Overall, a
solid growing season finished with a nice easy, harvest.
