    Rush less. Sip slow. Enjoy more.

    That’s the slogan at Slow Press HQ in Monterey County, California. Home of the Slow Press Chardonnay. It’s slow and steady wins the race for these guys but how exactly do they produce such a yummy full bodied, rich, creamy style Chardonnay full of those rich vanilla and butterscotch type flavours? Well, the Slow Press winemaker gives us a quick three step inside look into how it all goes down…

    Gentle Press – Minimizes astringency and elevates rich flavor
    Slow Fermentation – Amplifies natural fruit character
    Sur Lie Aging – Sur lie aging followed by 11 months in American oak delivers a full-bodied, creamy mouthfeel

    If you’re a fan of those classic richer styles of Californian Chardonnay this is well worth a nudge. And remember, never rush a great wine.
