Chardonnay Los Carneros

Chardonnay Los Carneros Wine Details
Price: $35.00 per bottle

Description: Our Chardonnay grapes come from the Sonoma side of Los Carneros, a cool growing region highly influenced by the marine climate of the San Francisco Bay. We use three different clones of Chardonnay. We do this to allow ourselves more flexibility in blending, and to give our wine more complexity over all.

Varietal Definition
Chardonnay is by far the most widely planted grape crop in California and dominates California’s cooler, coastal, quality wine regions. The natural varietal ‘taste and smell’ of Chardonnay is surprisingly unfamiliar to many wine drinkers, as its true character is often guised with dominating winemaking signatures. Chardonnay’s rather subdued primary fruit characteristics lean toward the crisp fruitiness of apples, pears and lemon, but the variety’s full body is capable of supporting a host of complementary characteristics, such as oak, butter and vanilla. Regardless of what is the appropriate style for Chardonnay, the varietal continues to dominate vineyard plantings in every corner of the world. Close attention to clonal selection has made this broad geographic and climactic range of Chardonnay viable in thoughtful viticultural hands.
