Our Chardonnay comes from Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District, located at the southern end of the Napa Valley. Cooling marine influences create a unique microclimate that helps the grapes maintain bright fruit flavors and retain acidity.
Hand-harvested in the cool morning hours, these grapes are then whole-cluster pressed to tank. The juice is cold settled for 48 hours before moving down to barrels for fermentation Once in barrel, the juice was inoculated with cultured yeast. The finished wine was aged for nine months with no malolactic fermentation.
Light, crisp and fruit-driven in style, this Oak Koll Chardonnay shows aromas of Asian pear, cantaloupe melon, and lemon rind. With a hint of vanilla, the palate is focused with a spice-driven finish.
