Covenant - Chardonnay Lavan Dry White Wine
2017 marks the tenth vintage for Covenant Chardonnay Lavan. The wine is made from grapes grown in a small vineyard on Sonoma Mountain. Jeff began working with this vineyard—called Scopus—back in 2010, when he made some Chardonnay for the vineyard's owners. He liked the wine so much, that he decided to make Scopus Vineyard the core of our Lavan program the next year. The wine is rich in mineral and citrus flavors and reminds us of what great white Burgundy tastes like!
“Lavan” (which means “white” in Hebrew) is sourced from the 10-acre Scopus Vineyard at the top of Sonoma Mountain. This 100% Chardonnay is whole cluster pressed and then barrel-fermented in French oak (10% new) with native yeast. Aged in French oak for 16 months, it is lush-textured and elegant—reminiscent of fine white Burgundy.
