About Our Wines

2014 Chardonnay14Chard

Origin: Atlas Peak District, Napa Valley, Antinori Napa Valley Family Estate named Antica Napa Valley.

Alcohol: 14%

Grapes: 100% Chardonnay

Production: 54 cases

Vineyard: Chardonnay grapes are from the Reserve vineyard, ten acres in size. The vineyard is planted at an elevation of 1420 feet, in the volcanic soil series Aiken Loam. It is planted at a vine density of 1815 vines per acre and divided equally among five distinct Chardonnay clones that contribute to the wine's complexity through the clonal diversity. Clones Dijon 96, Dijon 76 and Weimer Burgundian Selection provide for the complexity in flavors while clones Prosser 15 and Martini 4 provide the natural acidity that brings balance and a mineral character to the wine.

Tasting notes: The tantalizing, flinty nose of this Burgundian style Chardonnay paves the way to a gorgeous silky entry.   Stimulating the palate are layers of creamy pear, minerality, hazelnut and flaky, buttered croissants melting in your mouth.  Focused and well balanced with spiced barrel notes and lively acidity, this wine lingers well beyond the last graceful sip.
