2018 Knock On Wood: 100% Chardonnay, all stainless-steel and no malolactic fermentation. Procured from hillside vineyards in Yamhill-Carlton AVA, reminiscent of the grand crus of Burgundy's Cote d'Or. It benefited from a very long and cold fermentation - almost two months - resulting in a lean and mean wine with perfume of honeydew melon and pear surfing huge waves of minerals, bringing a nice tide of racy starfruit to the finish.
A Willamette-Valley chardonnay from famed-winemaker André Mack proves the ubiquitous grape can have character, body and attractive personality. Founded by sommelier André Hueston Mack in 2007, both ends of Maison Noir incorporate a trademark attitude and personal perspective on wine subculture. The wines are unique and distinctive garage wines, initially created for some of the New York's best restaurants for whom Mack was a sommelier and now available nationwide. Maison Noir apparel is inspired by WINE LIFESTYLE/STREET CULTURE of the punk and hip-hop scenes while reminiscent of independent skateboard company apparel of the 1990s
Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of golden apple, pear, lemon zest, starfruit and blossom with a hint of nectarine stone fruit. On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied chardonnay has medium-plus-intensity, green-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a lemon-citrus-and-pear-infused, medium-plus finish. The wine is slightly creamy in texture with a floral midpalate.
This is the chardonnay friends will ask you, “Where did you get that?” when you pour.
