2021 Carneros Chardonnay
This Chardonnay is sourced from both the Napa and Sonoma sides of the moderately cool and foggy Carneros AVA, which spans the foothills of the Mayacamas and ensures excellent freshness and acidity. The grapes were picked at the peak of flavor ripeness in early September and gently pressed upon arrival at the winery. The juice was fermented in both barrel and stainless-steel tanks, then aged sur lie for eight months in 30% new French oak. The lees were stirred two to three times per month to enhance the weight and texture of the Chardonnay and to encourage malolactic fermentation.
Aromas of green apples, canary melon, and lime. On the palate, a creamy texture and bright fruit flavors are enhanced by notes of honeysuckle, persimmon and baked pear. This is a crisp, luscious Chardonnay with a generous finish.
