Nathan Kendall Finger Lakes Chardonnay, New York, USA
This White Wine is naturally fermented and aged in neutral French oak barrels. Aged on the gross lees for a full year. The vine age as well as style of wine making helps to create a richer, more textured wine.
N. Kendall wines was founded in 2011 by Finger Lakes native Nathan Kendall. He is an internationally trained Winemaker who has experience in Sonoma, Willamette Valley, Waipara (NZ), Adelaide Hills (AUS), and Mosel (GER), although the plan was always to return to the shores of Seneca Lake. His passion is to create wines in an old world style using quality grapes and minimal intervention.
Having travelled throughout the world focusing on cool climate regions and varietals, the Winemaker's focus is on Riesling, Pinot noir, Chardonnay, and sparkling wine. All lots are carefully sorted, and the pristine fruit then undergoes long spontaneous fermentation's. Post fermentation, the wine ages for months on the gross lees to enhance the texture. Wines are then carefully racked, never fined, and gently filtered before bottling.
The Chardonnay is sourced from two vineyards on Seneca Lake from vines over 40 years old. One site is on silt loam while the other is on shale stone.
