Production Notes
The 2015 growing season began with unseasonably warm winter and spring temperatures across Napa Valley. As a result, bud break was early. Colder temperatures then followed, creating a smaller crop than previous years as winemakers prepared for harvest. Picking began in early August, proving to be one of the earliest harvests Napa Valley has ever seen. Across the valley, winemakers were happy to report the outstanding quality and great fruit concentration produced by the early harvest. Our Napa Valley Chardonnay was fermented in a combination of both stainless steel and French oak. Our stainless steel fermentation process allows us to preserve the fruit’s natural lush flavors and aromatic qualities. The French oak barrel sur lies then imparts a rich and buttery mouthfeel, creating a complex yet elegantly balanced Chardonnay.
Food Pairing Notes
This is a deliciously versatile wine; enjoy as an aperitif or pair with chicken and grilled fish entrees, creamy vegetable soups or your favorite selection of cheeses.
