Minnesota Cuvée Chardonnay
Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, CA
A conversation between father and son inspired this passion project for our winemaker. Twenty years ago, Dave Ready Jr. and Sr. were enjoying a glass of wine when Dave Jr. mentioned that there was a new local cooper that was making wine barrels from Minnesota oak. Dave Sr. immediately declared that they should acquire some of those barrels and develop a wine called â€œMinnesota CuvÃ©e.â€ Luckily enough, the Minnesota oak barrels integrated beautifully with Murphy-Goode's Estate Alexander Valley Chardonnay. The tropical fruit notes of the Chardonnay pair beautifully with the toasty vanilla and coconut notes from the barrel. This is a wine that we love sharing with friends.
