White Shoals 2009

Dry Chardonel

This 100% Chardonel sparkling wine is made in the classic m├ęthode champenoise with a controlled, continuation of fermentation in the bottle producing an exceptional quality and longevity of bubbles. We press our grapes quickly with the stems intact so the juice is extracted with a slight bitterness and with minimum skin contact. The juice is clear in color, delightfully sweet and generously yielding to our riotous yeast in double fermentation. The final result is a smooth, dry sparkling wine of exceptional character. If you need just one sparkling wine to enjoy on a daily basis with Maryland's seafood bonanza, SLACK White Shoals, named for the abundant bubbles on Maryland's sandy shoals, is it.
