2019 TEXTBOOK Chardonnay Napa Valley
Last of Vintage
We produced one-hundred and thirteen barrels of our Vintage 2019 Chardonnay from three superbly situated Napa Valley vineyards. Hand-pruned, hand-picked, gently pressed and then matured in small French oak barrels for nine months. TEXTBOOK Napa Valley Chardonnay shows bright tropical and stone fruit flavors, subtle French oak and a creamy texture; all in balance with fragrant and floral pear, melon and mineral notes. We think it is a "textbook" example of this noble variety grown in our outstanding Napa Valley vineyards.
Alluring floral notes with citrus and pear aromas. Medium-bodied with a lively palate loaded with ﬁg, apricot, melon, apple and toasty oak notes that impart a creamy, silky texture. The finish is perfectly balanced with bright acidity complex layers that continue to intrigue.
- The hallmarks of our Napa Valley Chardonnay are vibrant fruit, subtle creamy texture and balanced acidity.
- Exemplary viticultural practices provide wonderful clusters with excellent fruit concentration and balanced maturity.
- Classic winemaking; hand harvested, gentle whole-cluster press, prevailing yeasts, lees contact and French oak barrels for a perfectly balanced Chardonnay
