The grapes for our Estate Collection Napa Valley Chardonnay are grown in a single vineyard in south Napa. They were harvested from three blocks and are a combination of Dijon and Clone 4. The grapes spend afternoons in temperatures warmer than the valley floor, but the mornings and evenings are spent in fog with cool, marine breezes ultimately helping to evenly ripen the grapes. This area is ideal for producing Chardonnay with bright acidity and creamy, citrus flavors.Fresh white peach with a touch of honeysuckle and lavender arises from the glass. Notes of orange zest, lemon and lime enhance the apricot and honey notes with a soft touch of brown sugar and white pepper. The mouthfeel is soft, luxurious, and nicely balanced with a refreshing and lingering finish.
