A rich and bold, New World-style Chardonnay aged four months sur lie in American oak barrels for a sturdy, complex framework for our fruit's signature pear, apple, crisp mineral, and subtly spicy flavors. The rich and bold, New World-style Moniker Chardonnay was made primarily from grapes grown at La Ribera, our family's home vineyard along the banks of the Russian River. After gently pressing a combination of whole-cluster and de-stemmed grapes, we fermented and aged the wine four months sur lie in American oak barrels. This added a sturdy, complex framework for our fruit's signature pear, apple and crisp mineral flavors. We then blended in a lush, barrel-fermented Viognier sourced from nearby Hopland and another subtly spicy lot of Chardonnay aged in French oak for a wine that is equal parts nuanced and approachable.

Wine EnthusiastA beautiful and lightly spicy nutmeg character lights up this full-bodied wine from the first sniff to the lingering finish. The texture feels very rich, the pear-tart flavors are generous and the spiciness is intriguing. Hints of tannin and tartness firm up the mouthfeel nicely.
