    Winemaker's Notes:

    The fruit for our Starmont Chardonnay is grown in our favorite cooler areas of the Napa Valley, including Oak Knoll District and Carneros, where the maritime influence keeps the focus on crisp, vibrant fruit. The fruit was carefully sorted and whole cluster pressed to preserve freshness. The light oak treatment gives a round mouth feel and improved complexity, while highlighting the fruit driven focus of the wine.

    Aromas of Graventstein Apple, Bosc Pear, mandarin orange, peach, apple tart with roasted hazelnut, vanilla bean and spice (nutmeg and clove). The wine has a soft entry leading to a round fleshy mid-palate and is filled with layers of fruit and spice. Toasty notes are accentuated on the long finish.

    We recommend pairing with a butterflied, herb roasted chicken.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Fresh and vibrant, with a full-bodied mix of tangerine, nectarine, peach and pear flavors that are intense, complex, layered and cleansing. This holds on to its core fruitiness. Drink now through 2013. 34,050 cases made.
