Maggio Chardonnay 2017

The Maggio Family have been growing superb grapes in Lodi for five generations and providing this fruit to many of the premium wine growers of California. It was only as recently as 2002 that they decided to turn their hand to making the final wine with the knowledge gained from making such superb grapes. They have very exacting standards when it comes to winemaking and vineyard management and this is seen in the superb quality of their wines.

Vineyard

The grapes are grown in 500 acres of estate vineyards throughout the Lodi American Viticultural Area, which are situated between the Sierra Nevada foothills and the San Francisco Bay. The Chardonnay grapes are grown in the Delta region, west of Lodi, which has a slightly cooler climate than central Lodi, both day and night. This gentle Mediterranean climate of warm days and coastal evening breezes, is ideal for the cultivation of world class grapes.The mature vines are gnarled and sculpted by time, yielding small amounts of intensely flavoured fruit to create wines that are the ultimate expression of their terroir.

Winemaking

The Chardonnay grapes were harvested at 23 to 24° Brix, at optimal ripeness, acidity levels and quality. The grapes were cool fermented at temperatures of between 11 to 13°C, to retain the fresh and fruity characters. The temperature was then increased to between 14 and 15.5°C, to ensure the ferment reached dryness. 75% of the wine was fermented in stainless steel, contributing the fresh fruit characters in the final blend, while 25% was fermented in 70% American oak staves and 30% French oak staves. The wine was aged in both American and French oak staves for four months, with 5% aged for four months in American and French oak barrels. The oak influences impart a soft complexity and mellow creaminess to the final wine.

Tasting Note

Maggio Chardonnay is a delicious white wine with exceptional fruit flavours that combine to produce a voluptuous wine with superb tropical fruit characteristics. This is a beautifully balanced white wine with citrus and butterscotch flavours and a delightfully smooth finish.

Serving Suggestion

Ideal with green salads with toasted pine nuts, lightly spiced and peppered roast chicken, cod or shellfish with delicate sauces.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
