This Chardonnay is liquid gold.
A gourmand’s dream, made up of 100% Chardonnay farmed exclusively by James Jelks of Florèz Wines. These vines were harvested in 2019 and vinified as a separate Chardy apart from the original Moonmilk, and have aged beautifully in bottle for almost 2 years. Very rich and textured, with loads of crème brûlée aromas.
- Florèz Wines was founded by James Jelks in 2017, and are all about prioritizing old world technique and sensibility in their wines.
- After completing his degree in Oenology at UC Davis, James studied winemaking all over the world for 10 years before starting his own project in Santa Cruz.
- The Chardonnay for this wine is a child of the ‘70s, and most of the vines have been ripped out in favor of other esoteric varietals like Savagnin.
