Consistently one of Napas most opulent and satisfying Chardonnays. Unapologetic about its barrel fermented full bodied style, this wine is nimble enough to not overwhelm on the palate. It has a great focus, with precise layers of ripe yellow apple and Asian pear wrapped in a succulent vanilla crust. This is the bold Napa style at its very balanced and best.

Item Description

James Suckling 94
Consistently one of Napas most opulent and satisfying Chardonnays. Unapologetic about its barrel fermented full bodied style, this wine is nimble enough to not overwhelm on the palate. It has a great focus, with precise layers of ripe yellow apple and Asian pear wrapped in a succulent vanilla crust. This is the bold Napa style at its very balanced and best.

Winery notes
Our 2016 Unfiltered Chardonnay was 100 barrel fermented, using indigenous yeasts. The wine was aged for a total of 12 months in French oak barrels, 24 of which were new. During maturation, every barrel lot was tasted biweekly and hand-stirred only when needed to re-suspend the sediment. This technique protects the wine naturally from oxidation and promotes added complexity. The individual lots were then blended and bottled unfiltered.

Tasting Notes
Boasting vibrant aromas of tangerine blossom and wet stone, the 2016 Unfiltered Chardonnay is beautifully balanced with a pleasant crisp character. In the glass, it exhibits a light straw color with a faint green hue
