Small Lot Collection Napa Valley Barrel Fermented Chardonnay

Small Lot Collection Napa Valley Barrel Fermented Chardonnay bottle

The grapes for this Napa Valley Chardonnay come from our estate vineyards in Jameson Canyon and select Napa Valley growers on Atlas Peak. The growing conditions on the hilly vineyards of both locations are very similar to Carneros. Winds flow through Jameson Canyon, carrying in the cooling influence of the nearby Pacific Ocean and providing a long, cool growing season that enhances the intensity of the Chardonnay flavors.

  • Winemaking

    Using no malolactic fermentation, 85% new French oak and 8 months of sur-lie aging, our Napa Valley Chardonnay is made in a style that focuses on the inherent qualities of this varietal. A mix of specialized Old Wente, musque, and Dijon clones, this wine was whole cluster pressed and fermented in French oak barrels with 2/3 under native fermentation.

  • Nose

    This Chardonnay opens with welcoming aromas of toasted marshmallow, allspice, jasmine, and sandalwood.

  • Palate

    A hint of fresh minerality accompanied by notes of apricot, summer melons, nectarine, and lychee. The finish is long and harmonious.
