Napa Valley Chardonnay
For those who know and enjoy Chablis, this may be for you. If you like the big, buttery Chardonnay that California popularized in the 90’s, please refrain from reading further. This wine is every bit the measure of the classic Chardonnays that were born to Napa in the 1970’s. They were produced in a style that delivers fruit first with a nice stripe of minerality. Hold the buttery malolactic, this wine’s pale straw color hints at its fresh pear and spring wildflower aromas. The palate has a bright line of acidity that provides the focus for its flavors of golden apple and Comice pear. Complex and elegant, these flavors lead to a toasty brioche-like note with a savory finish.
Fermented and aged in barrels that we custom cooper in Calistoga.
