ABOUT THIS WINE
Produced to capture the essence of Carneros, our 2015 Nueva Chardonnay enjoys an extensive winemaking effort starting with early harvesting to retain natural acidity throughout the process. Barrel fermentation and sur lie aging allow the wine to take ib a fuller, lusher profile with only hints of oak that contribute touches of toasty, honey-like notes. Malo-lactic fermentation was induced to achieve a round, creamy mid palate but the wine’s focus is on the indigenous fruit charasterics for which Carneros is known.
Always from the prestigious growing region of Los Carneros, the is 2015 vintage brings us a bright and balanced Chardonnay. A harmony between acidity and bright fruit, this wine shows us upfront tropical notes and lemon zest, with a mid palate of nectarine and a smooth finish of flint-like minerality. This is a complex, well-rounded example of when exceptional vineyards meet outstanding winemaking.
