2015 Chardonnay

In the mouth the wine is delicious, with pure, rich, concentrated pear, citrus, honeysuckle and spicy apple flavors that are complex and well-focused, with a long, juicy aftertaste. Notes of guava, pear, and crisp apples round out the palate. Wonderful to sip by itself, the wine pairs well with poultry, seafood and light pastas.

The fruit for this wine comes from a 20-year-old vineyard just north of the city of Napa. 2015 was a warm, dry year for the Napa Valley and hence the grapes were picked on August 28th, a full month earlier than normal. The warm summer produced a Chardonnay with a full body and texture.

The fruit was pressed for us at Domaine Carneros in Napa. Once, we brought the juice in from Napa, a small portion was barreled down for extended aging and will become our 2015 Reserve Chardonnay. The remainder was left in tank to ferment and age without oak. The Stainless Steel portion is what we have for you today. A beautiful expression of what Chardonnay is like without alterations. Perfect for the onset of spring!
