What is the wine?

The 2016 Chardonnay Bald Mountain Vineyard 'Oeuf de Béton' (Concrete Egg) is now available as futures for a limited time.  There are less than one bottle per customer available.  However, futures will only be sold in six bottle increments for $40/bottle.  Act fast there are only 116 six packs available.  

 
Here is what I expect of this exciting wine:  It was harvested earlier than what most California producers find appropriate but at the ripeness in which our Chardonnays have become acclaimed for.  I do this to capture the racy acidity that Bald Mountain has become known for.  Everyone has their own opinion about perfect ripeness, and I have become biased about this because of my love for French White Burgundy. Native fermentation clicked along for an extend 3 months until going bone dry inside the concrete tank.  Why the concrete egg tank?  MINERALITY.  Chardonnay's most interesting characteristic in the Santa Cruz Mountains is the minerality.  Unlike aging in stainless steel, the egg will impart no flavor on the wine, and, will micro-oxygenate the wine similarly to a barrel but without any flavors of oak.  The purity of fruit and terroir will be striking.
