2012 The Crusher Chardonnay

Description

In contrast to the challenging vintages of 2010 and 2011, the stars aligned perfectly for Clarksburg in 2012. Clarksburg winemakers enjoyed a long sunny growing season that produced generous amounts of beautiful fruit to work with. Indeed, the biggest challenge of 2012 turned out to be staging the picking and processing, as all the varietals were ready to pick at the same time—a very unusual occurrence. Clarksburg yields were up and quality was exceptional. All the varietals enjoyed extended hang time, developing great color, concentrated flavors, and finely balanced structure and acidity. 2012 will prove to be an exciting year for wines from The Crusher.
