Rated 91/100 Wine Spectator
Our Los Carneros Chardonnay displays great fruit freshness, intensity and elegance. This wines focus is primarily on aromatics, and our winemaking techniques are intended to retain the characteristic Carneros aromas of lemon-citrus and white blossom, while enhancing the minerality and bright, vibrant fruit flavors of citrus and stone fruits in the wine.
Partial barrel and malolactic fermentation, combined with lees stirring, produces a wine with added layers of complexity, imparting hints of Meyer lemon, nectarine and lemongrass.
