About: Our Town Hall was built in 1935 in the popular gabled Cape Dutch Revival style. Much like the character of our Chardonnay, this historical building follows seamless lines and gentle curves to preserve the natural heritage and architecture of the village, yet still expresses itself boldly.
Vineyards vary in age from 4 to 15 years. The vineyards are planted on soil types that allow for the optimum vine growth balance. Grapes are harvested by hand in January and February at an average ripeness of 24°B.
Tasting Notes: Radiant pale gold with a youthful green glow. Attractive pineapple and lemon & lime fruit purity with an intensity on both the nose and palate. A gracious and engaging wine even without oak.
The grapes were cold fermented in stainless steel and left completely unwooded to amplify the inherent varietal fruit purity on the nose and palate. Extended contact with the fine lees and monthly stirring added richness and dimension.
Best served chilled at 6°C to 8°C, with or without food. Delicious with chicken à la king, veal parmigiana, pasta alfredo, grilled calamari or roast pork.
