RegionNapa Valley


We have very limited quantities of this Chardonnay from Stewart Vineyard in Carneros. Tiny Chardonnay berries were whole-cluster pressed, settled overnight and then racked into barrel. Each barrel was inoculated with a yeast strain chosen for its ability to ferment slowly and not generate much heat, critical in barrel fermentation. The goal was to preserve aromatics and add complexity. The wine aged sur-lie for 10 months. A third of the wine spent 10 months in new French Oak.
The wine is very light golden in color with mineral aromas—that wet-stone, gravel, non-fruity component—as well as apple, cardamom, vanilla, toasted hazelnut, basil, and a slight hint of orange peel. All components are in harmony, offering a rich yet balanced mouth.
