Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The grapes for the 2013 Chardonnay come from the Mueller and Cabral Vineyards in the Carneros appellation. These vineyards are located in the southwestern portion of the Napa Valley appellation, also within the Carneros appellation. These vineyards are level sites with characteristics typical of the area; thin clay soils, frequent winds and significant cloud cover. These are ideal conditions for extending the ripening period of Chardonnay and creating more complexity in the resulting wine.
Production Notes
2013 was a notable vintage for all varietals. It was a relatively early harvest which helped avoid exposure to late fall rains. There was one early heat event that occurred long before grapes would be susceptible to heat damage, and two rain events, neither of which proved significant. The early harvest ensured full optimal ripeness and great flavor development.
Winemaker Notes
“This wine has a crisp nose, with notes of butterscotch, toasted marshmallow, vanilla and light fruit. It is unmistakably Chardonnay with layered green apple, white nectarine, tangerine, fig, dried fruits and honey flavors that lead into a smooth, round mouthfeel. With nicely balanced, dynamic and persistent acid, it has a long, lingering finish with an integrated oak richness that enhances a subtle hint of sweetness in the wine.” —Joe Shirley
