CHARDONNAY

DOMESTIC WINES

1a
WINEMAKING NOTES:
Careful pressing of whole clusters minimized skin contact. This gentle process helped the wine achieve balance as well as develop a silky mouth-feel and enhanced the aging potential. Using native yeasts, the wine fermented in French oak barrels, did not undergo malolactic fermentation and spent 9 months on the lees in French oak barrels (50% new) prior to bottling.

TASTING NOTES:
Our 2017 Hope's Chardonnay explodes with fresh picked Granny Smith apple, Asian pear and zesty lemon curd aromas with just a kiss of allspice. It is opulent and round and has a mouth watering finish which leaves you wanting another sip. This wine can be enjoyed for at least the next 15 years.
2a
WINEMAKING NOTES:
Chardonnay's favored position among wine drinkers is well established. Our 2010 Chardonnay is fresh and lively yet pleasantly round with a gorgeously complex nose and a surprisingly lengthy finish. Think lemon chiffon pie: citrusy and bright yet a bit toasty and creamy. Vineyards in Napa Valley's cool southern end are at the heart of this wine's exquisite execution. Wine is made in the vineyard is a phrase heard often around here. Our 2010 vintage illustrates this fact very well. The utilization of whole-cluster pressing, barrel fermentation and sur lie aging are among the traditional steps employed to create this crowd-pleasing stylish wine.
3a
TASTING NOTES:
Bright fresh and lively, this white serves up lots of citrus including mandarin orange and pink grapefruit with some peachy notes. Very vivacious and bristling with acidity, while the subtle oak is really nicely integrated, offering hints of toast, vanilla and hazelnut. Supple texture, medium bodied with good length.
4a
WINEMAKING NOTES:
This wine is rich and expressive with aromas of stone fruit, crème brûlée, baked apple and pear. More stone fruit, lemon and golden apple flavors fill out the full-bodied palate. The finish is long and lively, with the acid delicately balancing the texture and complexity.

TASTING NOTES:
Aged in 60% new French oak and made with a good dose of malolactic fermentation, this Chardonnay is dominated buttered toast and popcorn flavors. It’s an opulent style of Chardonnay, but obscures pleasant flavors of tropical fruit, pear and apricot.
5a
WINEMAKING NOTES:
Cuvée (blend) crafted from batches of Chardonnay grown at several estate vineyards, each contributing its own distinct personality. Its juicy tropical aromas of pineapple and mango interweave with hazelnut or almond, and a touch of lime. A sip shows slightly different flavors, dancing between grapefruit, lemon and pear with a subtle hint of vanilla. It is medium-bodied with a flinty, mineral finish that stays clean due to a firm acid backbone.
6a
WINEMAKING NOTES:
This cuvée offers alluring fruit and floral aromas of citrus, peach, melon and white flowers. The cool growing seasoned allowed for extended hangtime, underscoring high tone tropical notes on the palate, with sur lie aging adding lovely elements of graham cracker, clove and brioche. Throughout, excellent acidity and a core of minerality keep the wine focused and fresh, adding definition to flavors of green apple, summer melon and peach. The finish is long, crisp and minerally, with a lingering note of lemon zest and subtle spice from oak aging.
TASTING NOTES:
Crisp, bright and fresh!  This racy chardonnay has bright aromatics of honeysuckle and fig with wonderful fruit flavors of pineapple and mandarin orange.  There is a fantastic orange peel and slate like minerality to this wine that gives it great acidity and balance on the finish. With no oak and no malolactic fermentation this wine struts around a bit more like a Macon Villages or a Pouilly Fuissé than a California Chardonnay.
