Description

Initial citrus and flint stone notes on the nose open to peach and ripe mango, framed by subtle undertones of vanilla blossom. Fresh, yet fruit forward and lush on the palate, well -integrated acidity carries secondary flavors of sweet stone fruit and melon. Oak nuances are beautifully integrated and give this wine unparalleled depth on the mid-palate followed by great minerality, salinity and length.

Vineyard

For this wine we select only the best grapes, which are primarily from our oldest block of Chardonnay, the Old Wente clone planted in 1989. Through a combination of clone, age and cool climate ,this single block in our estate vineyard in the chilly Carneros region of Napa Valley creates wonderfully rich flavors, balanced with crisp acidity.
