    Winemaker's Notes:

    Aromas of honeysuckle, white peach and jasmine, yield to vibrant tropical fruit flavors, which are balanced by crisp mineral notes. Medium bodied, this wine is fruit focused, with a nice acidity and good mouthfeel. Because this wine does not go through malolactic fermentation, it preserves its bright acidity and vibrant fruit flavors.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This enormously rich Chardonnay was grown in the winery’s dramatic mountain vineyard. It’s powerful in concentrated pineapple jam and lemon fruit, while winemaker interventions add creamy notes of vanilla, honey and buttered toast. What it trades in nuance, it more than makes up for in sheer power.

    2008 Mount Veeder Napa Valley Chardonnay Fermented in older, neutral oak barrels without malolactic to soften the acidity, this is a bright, limey chardonnay. It's made entirely from the musqué clone, which gives it a distinct floral impression. Undertones of linden and nettle balance the sweetness. For a salad of roast beets and goat cheese.
