Fox Run 2013 Chardonnay, displays the winery trademarksubtle melon, lemon, and white nectarine aromas. The mouthfeel is creamy, but not leaden, due to bright acidity and moderate alcohol. Vinification without oak yields no distracting oak flavors, resulting in a wine that is fresh andflavor-packed and finishes clean and refreshing. Fox Run 2013 Chardonnay is 91% Chardonnay, with a 9% Traminette component blended in prior to bottling to add lifted fruit notes and a hint of sweetness. The grapes used were harvested in the early morning and transported to their crush pad. The fruit was crushed and pressed, settled, racked, and inoculated with the winemaker favorite yeast strain. Fermentation lasted three weeks, and the wine was then left in contact with its lees for a further six months. Fox Run produces small lot wines from several other exceptional lakefrontvineyard sites. The Doyle Family Vineyard, sourced for the 2013 vintage, is located on the east side of Seneca Lake and is one of the oldest plantings of the grape in New York State.
