Chardonnay Napa Valley 2011

Chardonnay Napa Valley 2011


The diversity of clones and our cool climate vineyards make our Chardonnay unique. The natural high acidity allows us to ferment 100% in barrels, and go through 100% Malolactic Fermentation. We strive to accomplish the best of both worlds - high acidity and minerality like a traditional Burgundy yet with roundness on the palate as a traditional California Chardonnay.

Due to the limited availability of this item, the maximum order quantity is 12.

Subtotal:  $0.00

100% Chardonnay

Winemaker Notes:

Napa Valley faced myriad challenges in 2011. A cool and wet spring delayed the growing season and also created major shatter. The positive is it allowed the vine to concentrate its effort into the remaining clusters and give them intense flavors. Summer temperatures rarely rose above 90° F. By the beginning of September, the season was weeks behind the norm, but it really helped the balance between acidity and ripeness, protecting the acidity from being burned. With the Chardonnay we were able to bring in grapes with high sugars while still maintaining acidity. This brought a lot of finesse, elegance and minerality to this Chardonnay.
