This rare Napa Chardonnay harkens back to the glory days of the 1970’s. No malolactic fermentation and 12 months in French oak deliver all the savory, delicious fruit we expect from this legendary house. A touch of Meyer lemon and pineapple on the nose, with baked apple tart to follow. Bright acidity grabs your attention, balanced by a smooth, luscious palate of more tropical fruit and baking spice. Chardonnay enthusiasts will find this purely irresistible.
This is one of the last bastions of Napa Chardonnay that retains the ethos of winemaking from the 1970s and '80s. A blend of mainly Rutherford and Oak Knoll fruit, it undergoes no malolactic fermentation and is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. Aromas of lemon meringue, key limes and orchard fruit blossoms lead to an angular, focused and pure palate. An authentic example of a past time.
