Item Description

" Rich with notes of citrus, melon and vanilla, this Chardonnay is a fresh expression of the hand-picked classic varietal. Two thirds of the grapes in this blend were grown in St. Francis’ estate Lagomarsino Vineyard located in the Russian River Valley, the remainder were carefully selected from nearby vineyards in Sonoma Valley and Carneros, choosing only fully ripened fruit. The fruit is 100% whole cluster pressed and fermented in different lots, then barrel aged for six months in French and American oak barrels prior to blending. Barrels are lees stirred by hand during aging to achieve a rich, lush mouth-feel. This Chardonnay undergoes 100% malolactic fermentation. The barrel component adds a toasty complexity to the finished wine.
Fruit and pear aromas are complimented by hints of oak and vanilla. " ~ Winery Notes

View all from Steele Wines
Steele WinesOur winery is located, as the crow flies, right around 100 miles directly north of San Francisco. However, there is no direct road, so it takes around 2 1/2 hours to drive from San Francisco. People usually take two different routes to get up to see us. You can take highway 101 north through Marin and Sonoma Counties. Just after crossing in Mendocino County, you will come to the town of Hopland. Take a right turn and head east on highway 175 over the Hopland Grade. We are 20 miles from Hopland.

Or you can drive up through the Napa Valley, staying on highway 29 all the way, coming over Mt. St. Helena. We are located on highway 29 halfway between the towns of Lakeport and Kelseyville.
