2017 Finger Lakes 'Orchards of Seneca' Chardonnay

Chardonnay from the east side of Seneca Lake, partially barrel fermented and aged on lees. White nectarine and floral aromas from the unoaked portion are supported by high acidity, balanced oak and creamy texture.

Chardonnay is well-suited to the Finger Lakes, often highlighting the lean acidity and minerality typical of the region, and also lending itself to subtle oak treatment. 2017 was a cooler vintage in the Finger Lakes compared with 2016, and as such is a more typical example of this style. The two vineyards where these grapes were sourced are situated between Seneca Lake and Cayuga Lake, in the zone referred to as the ‘Banana Belt’ as it is one of the warmest areas in the Finger Lakes region.

About the Winery

Living Roots Wine & Co.

Living Roots Wine & Co. is a young urban winery in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York and a not-so-urban winery in the Adelaide Hills. Founded by husband and wife team Sebastian [an Adelaide, South Australia native] and Colleen [a Rochester, New York native] Hardy, the intercontinental label pays homage to family heritage while also branching out to new vineyards, styles and techniques. We source grapes from a number of growers, including both of our families, highlighting the natural strengths of each variety and climate through our wines from vastly different corners of the globe: the Finger Lakes and the regions surrounding Adelaide.
