2015 Napa Valley Chardonnay

Vintage   |  2015 2014 2013 

Fresh lemon rolls quickly into lemon curd and warm toasted almonds. The fresh fruit nose is balanced nicely with secondary aromas of custard and brioche, ripe melon, pear, and poached pear. On the palate the wine is full of flavor.The mid-palate is creamy with a hint of nutmeg and finishes with fresh citrus.

Description

HARVEST & WINEMAKING

These Chardonnay grapes are mostly Dijon and Wente clone grown in the renowned Carneros District in Napa Valley. We buy fruit from the Haire Vineyard and Ghisletta Vineyard as well as the Cunat Vineyard in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. Grapes were harvested September 1st through 15th, 2015, with Brix from 23.2 to 25.8 degrees brix. Our Chardonnay is hand-harvested, cluster-sorted and whole cluster pressed to preserve the pure varietal characteristics. The creaminess comes from stirring the lees in oak barrels twice each month for 8 months. No secondary malolactic fermentation was allowed.

Tasting Note

The grapes for the Napa Valley Chardonnay come from the finest vineyard sites in the best appellations of Napa Valley.
