The grapes for this 2021 Generations Chardonnay were harvested from two vineyards, one in Jameson Canyon and the other, which sits in the sloping hills of the western portion of the Carneros region in Napa. The Jameson Canyon vineyard is planted on rolling hills with cooling winds from the nearby Pacific Ocean that provide a long, cool growing season enhancing the intensity of the Chardonnay flavors and maintaining bright, balanced acidity.Vibrant notes of fresh grapefruit, mango, and lemon tart eervescently arise from the glass, complemented by subtle hints of lingering freshness and almonds. Luxurious flavors of fig, apricot, and tropical fruits generously unfold across the creamy palate, graced by a delicate touch of nutmeg. The finale imparts a delightful freshness, elevating the concentrated and decadent flavors to a harmonious conclusion.
