Winemaker Notes

Our Chardonnay has crisp, clean aromas and flavors of apple, pear and tropical fruits. We focused on obtaining balanced, ripe fruit flavors in sourcing the grapes and making the wine. Enjoy this rich dry white wine with salmon, chicken, creamy soups and white sauced pasta.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Enthusiast

This inexpensive Chardonnay has a fair amount of oakly depth to it, unexpectedly since only 5% of it was aged in American oak, the rest in stainless steel. Nonetheless it has toasty vanilla flavors and aromas of lime, apple and cantaloupe and tasts refreshing and clean.

Sixteen year-old Adolph Parducci arrived in Northern California with his parents in 1912. The new immigrant family settled in Mendocino County an area that resembled their native Tuscany. Even today, the geography and climate of Mendocino County are similar to Northern Italy. The County's hillside vineyards provide plenty of exposure to ripen hearty red grape varieties, while deep river valleys with good drainage support flavor-packed white grapes.

Known mainly for bold reds, crisp whites, and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place the primary emphasis upon its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally warm to hot. In the center of the country lies a vast, dry plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought. Because of its location on the Iberian Peninsula, many of Spain’s wine regions are located on or near the milder coast, either of the Bay of Biscay to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the northwest, or the Mediterranean sea to the south and east. Each of these regions has its own unique soil, climate, and topography, as well as principal grape varieties.

In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albarino and [Verdejo] dominate, though elsewhere the most popular wines are generally red. [Rioja] is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha ([Grenache]), as well as rich, nutty whites from Viura. [Ribera del Duero] produces opulent, fruity, top-quality wines from almost exclusively Tempranillo. [Priorat], a sub-region of Catalonia, blends Garnacha with Cariñena ([Carignan]) to make bold, full-bodied wines with a hint of earthiness. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. [Sherry], Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in [Jerez]. Since the 1990s, international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc have been steadily increasing in importance in several regions.
