The Los Carneros AVA, located in the southernmost end of the Napa Valley, is known to be one of the premiere Chardonnay growing regions in the world. Mathew Bruno's winemakers beautifully melded this wine using a partial barrel ferment, complete malolactic fermentation succeeded by nine months of sur lees aging in new French and American oak.
Upon first pour, the Chardonnay evokes aromas of nectarines, Honeycrisp apples and vanilla. A taste reveals flavors of stone fruits, pears and honeysuckles. The rich and smooth finish is complimented by hints of toasty notes and spices.
