Our Los Carneros Chardonnay displays great fruit freshness, intensity and elegance. This wine's focus is primarily on aromatics, and our winemaking techniques are intended to retain the characteristic Carneros aromas of lemon-citrus and white blossom, while enhancing the minerality and bright, vibrant fruit flavors of citrus and stone fruits in the wine. Partial barrel and malolactic fermentation, combined with lees stirring, produces a wine with added layers of complexity, imparting hints of meyer lemon, nectarine and honeysuckle.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a full-bodied white made in a bigger style, its flavors leaning into caramel apple, vanilla and sweet oak. It benefits from accents of gingersnap and nutmeg.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chardonnay reveals notes of fresh pears and honeydew melon with wafts of lemongrass and lightly browned toast. Medium-bodied with just enough uncomplicated, melon-inspired flavors, it has a refreshing finish.
