Ripe Anjou pear with fresh orange blossom on the nose complement hints of exotic green almond, lemon zest, and white grapefruit flavors with a touch of creaminess on the palate.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our non-oaked style of this popular variety celebrates the expressive fruit character of Chardonnay nurtured from specially selected vineyards in the Napa Valley. Fragrantly ripe Anjou pear with fresh orange blossom on the nose complement hints of exotic green almond, lemon zest, and white grapefruit with a touch of creaminess on the palate created by battonage (lees stirring).

100% Chardonnay
Vineyard Notes
2014 started with worrisome, drought-like conditions, and many feared a parched, dry spring as in 2013. Refreshingly, spring rains came in February and into March providing water for the soils and filling reservoirs. The wine growing season will most be remembered for the August 24th Napa earthquake that occurred just as harvest was commencing in the Napa Valley. The vines were not affected and harvest finished early, bringing in beautiful, healthy fruit. Grapes for our 2014 Unoaked Chardonnay were picked between September 12-14.

We sourced the majority of our Chardonnay grapes from vineyards in the cooler Carneros region of the Napa Valley. These and the other vineyard sources were chosen for their intense, full-flavored Chardonnay grapes, fruit that we knew would shine in the non-oaked style.
Winemaker Notes
This Chardonnay is non-oaked to express the pure fruit flavors of Chardonnay and the terroir and personality of the vineyards from which it originates. The grapes were hand harvested in the cool of the morning and gently pressed whole-cluster, minimizing skin contact to retain freshness and vibrancy. All of the juice was fermented in 100% stainless steel and a portion was then allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation for additional texture and character. Battonage (stirring of the lees) during sur lie aging imparted further complexity and creaminess. The wine was bottled August, 2015.
