Quick Overview

Tasting notes: From the vineyards of one of the most acclaimed grape growers in the Napa Valley, an intense well structured wine, with depth, balance and length. This Chardonnay is more true Burgundy style that has a floral citrus and mineral notes in the nose that will open up up and show hints of both apple and pineapple. It is a "red wine drinkers" - white wine.

Winemaking:

The wine was barrel fermented and aged in specially made French oak Burgundy for 11 months, 40% new. There was no malolactic fermentation, so this wine retains its bright natural acidity and as a result will age for many years.
