Quick Overview


Eyes : The wine is bright and clean in the glass with a beautiful golden yellow tone.

Nose: The aromas of fresh butter, vanilla oak, and citrus fruit combine in a way that reminds me of orange Creamsicle, with a floral, jasmine hint. A decadent introduction.

Mouth : The aromas introduced in the nose continue on the palate. Buttered popcorn and vanilla oak characters mingle with flavors of honeydew melon, lemon peel, papaya, jasmine, honeysuckle, banana, and lychee.

Pairings: The richness and creaminess of our Chardonnay lends itself well to creamy sauces and fish dishes. I like it with soft, mild cheeses and chicken breast.

Bread: The 2013 Chardonnay was aged in 40% French. 20% Hungarian, and 40% American oak. All were a combination of new and used oak with medium toasts.
The wine was aged for 10 months before bottling.

Butter: The wine underwent 100% malolactic fermentation after primary fermentation, maximizing both the buttery flavors and softer textures.

Composition: 100% California Chardonnay

Alcohol: 13.5%

Bottling: 5000 cases produced

Bread & Butter is a reference to the craft of winemaking.
Bread = Oak. Butter = Malolactic Fermentation.
The type of oak, origin, producer, level of toast, time on oak, and racking all play a vital role in developing bread-like flavors and texture of the wine. Butter characters come from malolactic fermentation. The conversion of malic acid to lactic acid produces rich, buttery flavors and changes the texture of the wine to be more creamy and soft. These factors work together to best compliment the complexity of fruit and expression of terroir produced in the vineyard.

RobertR - Classic Old Napa Valley style Chardonnay
(Posted on 5/26/2017)
Very oaky, buttery chardonnay like we used to drink 20 years ago. The big full bodied chardonnay is back. Its no wonder it is the number one seller in Japan.

Great to drink by it self or nice with fish, sushi, light meats and cheese.
