2014 Tor Reserve Chardonnay Cuvee Susan 750ml
Tasting Notes: "For the first time ever, Tor Kenward made a Chardonnay Reserve Cuvée Susan in 2014. This was a selection of the best barrels from all his different lots. The 2014 Chardonnay Reserve Cuvée Susan wine displays plenty of orange blossom, pineapple, caramelized citrus, lemon oil and subtle oak. It is full-bodied, rich, and potentially very complex and long-lived." - Robert Parker (96 Points)
Winemaker's Notes: For the 2014 Reserve Chardonnay we knew that we wanted to begin with a base of the 2014 Torchiana Chardonnay since its blend of richness with great acidity would be a fantastic starting point. The question was how much as the base and then how much of the Hyde and Durell (and would both even make it in?). It took us several trials where some blends worked and some didn't work at all. Eventually, we fine-tuned the blend to the finished blend to show the best of all sites, yet showing better than any did on their own. Then we chose the best barrels of each lot to create a true Reserve Chardonnay.
