2022 Napa Valley Chardonnay

Regular price $46.00

Chardonnay favors cooler climates and for California that means the coastal ranges and inlet bay regions, with their misty mornings and foggy afternoons, compressing the growing day.  Few regions express this "bi-polar" day better than the Carneros region in south Napa Valley. The vineyard is planted to Dijon clone 96 of chardonnay, in one contiguous block.

This Chardonnay displays a beautiful bouquet of vibrant summer peaches, golden pear, banana, toasted brioche, and bergamot lemon. There is a burst of freshness and balance on the palate highlighted with bright flavors of green apple, honeydew melon, kiwi fruit, lemon meringue, graham crackers, and green tea.
