WINE TASTING NOTES:
Our Napa Valley Chardonnay is smooth and elegantly balanced. Aromas of butterscotch and praline lead to beautifully integrated layers of baked pear, peach and toasted coconut. The rich, creamy mouthfeel gives way to a brilliant lemon acidity that lingers on the finish.
Our North Coast Chardonnay was primarily sourced from Mendocino County, Lake County and Solano County. The 2017 vintage started with ample rainfall in the winter, followed by a moderate spring and an exceptionally warm growing season. Attentive canopy management ensured optimum fruit quality during harvest. In this vintage we see exceptional fruit-driven characteristics combined with brilliant acidity, making this wine an ideal food-pairing partner.
The grapes for our North Coast Chardonnay were gently whole-cluster pressed. A portion of this wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks at a cool temperature of 62°F, with the balance fermented in barrels at ambient cellar temperature. This wine underwent full malolactic fermentation and sur lie aging to impart a creamy mouthfeel.
