Sourced from St Supery's sustainably farmed Dollar-Hide Estate Vineyard, located in the Rutherford district or the Napa Valley, this wine has serious pedigree behind it and what is in the bottle does not fail to back it up. Every bit as much commitment and care go into the production of this wine as the properties more famous Cabernet Sauvignon.
Winemaker Michael Scholz oversees the crafting of this wine from start to finish. Upon achieving the desired level of ripeness in the vineyards, the Chardonnay is harvested in the cool morning hours in order to preserve the delicate flavors. The fruit is then received to the cellar, where the grapes are pressed to tank and immediately chilled and settled prior to fermentation.
Fermentation is completed in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to maintain and enhance the natural flavors. Four percent of the blend is put through secondary malolactic fermentation to enhance complexity. The wine is then kept on yeast lees for 4 months and stirred once a week to broaden the pallet feel.
The final result is a Chardonnay that strikes you as a delightful cross between perfect Napa Valley Chardonnay fruit and time tested Burgundian wine making technique as practiced in the classic region of Pouilly-Fuissé. We absolutely dig this wine and we are certain that you will too. Here are the tasting notes from Michael Scholz himself:
"In the glass, the wine presents a bright, light-yellow straw color with hints of green. Rich tropical aromas combine with apricot, peach and a hint of kiwi. Apricot continues through the palate with ripe nectarine and mandarin orange flavors that are highlighted by lemon zest on the finish, creating a balanced and crisp Chardonnay."
