2016 Moreson Mercator Chardonnay
?Mercator: a Burgundian-inspired approach to blending.?
The Clonal Debate:
Each clone contributes its unique palate (taste) and nose (smell) profile to a wine. Floral, fruity, citrusy ? the list goes on and on.
A clonal blending approach means that we select certain clones as our ingredients in the final blend of Mercator. The ratio of each clone used, in the Mercator blend, is vintage specific. This is because each vintage results in slightly different core quantities of each blend change from year to year. Ultimate influenced by our greatest driver ? producing the best Mercator that vintage could possibly produce.
