2014 Chardonnay, 'EFFORT'
Bright natural acidity, rich palate and vibrant. Fermented by native yeast and aged in neutral and once-filled French oak barrels, concrete vessels and a few acacia-wood barrels. Complex, but pleasing and fruit-driven.
EFFORT is the companion label to our limited-edition Center of Effort wines. Each lot of the vintage is crafted in accordance with our vigilant standards of quality, all competing for the crown. However, only a handful of elite lots are ultimately destined for Center of Effort. What remains is our best effort of the vintage.
Stylistically, EFFORT Chardonnay exhibits a more approachable, fruit-forward style, bringing diversity and dimension to our portfolio of wines.
