Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Grapes for the 2017 Reserve Collection Chardonnay were selected mostly from the Mueller Vineyard in Carneros. Located in the southwestern portion of Napa Valley, this vineyard is a level site with characteristics typical of the region; thin clay soils, frequent wind and significant cloud cover. This vineyard offers ideal conditions for Chardonnay, giving the fruit an extended ripening period and creating greater complexity in the resulting wine.
Production Notes
The 2017 growing season offered superlative growing conditions with abundant rain at the beginning of the year. Harvest brought lower yields with fruit of excellent quality. This wine was fermented in barrel with native yeast and underwent lees stirring. In total, this Chardonnay was aged for 15 months in 37% new French oak.
Winemaker Notes
“This bright, inviting wine showcases aromas of lemon rind, crème fraîche and white peach framed by hints of pear. It is unmistakably Chardonnay, with its refreshing acidity and complex flavors of lemon curd, granny smith apple and white peach with toasted pie crust on the finish. A creamy, supple texture complements the clean, firm, lingering acidity.” —Joe Shirley
