Broken Earth Chardonnay 2013

Broken Earth Chardonnay 2013

Sku: P62553

Broken Earth Winery is located in Paso Robles, California. The winery was originally founded in 1983 by the Arciero brothers who renamed the property EOS in 1996. EOS means “Goddess of the Dawn and also referenced the brothers’ new approach and renewed investment and commitment to the winery. The 110,000 square-foot winery and hospitality facility was built in 1985 and remodeled in the early 1990’s. In 2010, after two changes of ownership, Foley Wines acquired the rights to the brand whilst a Chinese partnership purchased the winery. Wine industry veteran Chris Cameron, VP and Director of Winemaking along with his financial partner Gerald Forsythe own the 520 acre Shimmin Canyon Vineyard. The vineyard was planted by Herman Schwartz in the early 1970’s. The original name of the ranch was Rancho Tierra Rejada, Spanish for “Land of Worked Earth, thus inspiring the name Broken Earth Winery. The wines are made with estate fruit and the vineyard is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay and other varietals. Sustainable farming methods are employed and Chris’s philosophy of minimal winemaking extends to all brands within the portfolio: Quadrant, Pull, Broken Earth and Shimmin Canyon.

Tasting notes
The wine presents ripe notes of citrus and stone fruit with hints of cream, toasted nuts and spice.

A fine example of a great Paso Robles Chardonnay. The Estate grapes are fermented and aged in French Barriques Barrel, lending just the right amount of influence on the tropical range of fruit as to support it but not overshadow. The wine is allowed to sit on lees and stirred giving a soft palate with biscuit, honey and spice. The finish is long lasting and clean. ,

Technical notes
The grapes were harvested from Block 1K, the estate’s best parcel of Chardonnay, which is situated on sloping hills at the far eastern end of the estate. The wine was fermented and aged in French oak barriques.
