Wine Lovers, Celebrate the Release of the Grand Cru Chardonnay!

News 🕔April 17, 2014 0 comments

Laurita Winery & Vineyards launches its limited production 2005 Grand Cru Chardonnay. Thedistinctive taste, style and aroma of the Grand Cru is not found in any other New Jersey Chardonnay.

The 2005 Grand Cru begins with hand harvested Chardonnay grapes that are sorted and gently pressed to juice and then fermented with the Winemaker’s select yeast in Hungarian Oak barrels. The wine is transferred out, the barrels are cleaned and the wine is returned for additional Malolactic fermentation to soften and balance the wine. Winemaker, Nicolaas Opdam, allows the wine to age quietly with the occasional stirring of the remaining yeast and then he personally tastes wine from each barrel, looking for that attractive bouquet of vanillin/chocolate/fruit and oak.

The 2005 Grand Cru Chardonnay’s complexity of character and richness in taste makes this a unique creation. Nicolaas proclaims the Grand Cru to be one of the finest wines he has produced in over 35 years of wine making in Europe, Canada and the United States.

Be one of the elite circle of Laurita wine lovers to own the coveted Grand Cru Chardonnay for adding to your fine wines collection. Once it is gone, it will not be replenished. Each bottle is numbered and hand signed by winemaker, Nicolaas Opdam.
