Our Napa Valley Chardonnay is made using fruit grown on elite vineyards in some of the coolest regions of Napa Valley. The majority of the grapes come from Kelly Ranch, which overlooks the San Pablo Bay, where marine influences and shallow soils composed of clay and gravel create optimal growing conditions for Chardonnay. To add depth and complexity, the 2015 vintage also includes grapes from Red Hen Vineyard in Oak Knoll, and from an older, dry-farmed block of Wente clone grapes from Bald Mountain Vineyard, which is located at an elevation of 2,000 feet on Mount Veeder. This wine was aged on its lees for eight months in one-third new French oak barrels. For added texture and viscosity, a significant portion of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation.

Production Notes
Wine Blend: 100% Chardonnay
Winemaker Notes
This wine begins with an enticing nose displaying layers of pineapple, nectarine, citrus blossom and apricot, as well as delicate oak-inspired notes of vanilla custard, clove and nutmeg. On the palate, it strikes a lovely balance between bright acidity and creamy richness, with vibrant layers of tropical fruit, lychee and orange zest supported by hints of butter and crème fraîche.
