The Napa Valley collection sources grapes from our four vineyards, and some from our favorite neighbors, including Beckstoffer, Red Barn, Quarry, and Sangiacomo. Our Napa Chardonnay is aged in French oak barrels, with one-third in new barrels, one-third in once-used barrels, and one-third in twice-used barrels, for balance.
A bright and balanced wine with vibrant aromatics of baked apple, white nectarine, and toasted oak. A lively entry of tropical fruit and citrus expands with notes of rich lemon curd and brioche bread pudding. Ample yet refined, this unmistakably Carneros wine finishes with a refreshing wave of acidity.
The foundation for the Carneros Chardonnay is Frank Family’s Lewis Vineyard, with additions of neighboring Beckstoffer Vineyards in Napa-Carneros and Sangiacomo Vineyards located in Sonoma-Carneros.
As with all our white wines, we are looking for texture and complexity. To achieve this, we practice a long cold fermentation and then put the wine through partial malolactic fermentation to soften the overall high acidity. While aging, we employ bâtonnage (hand-stirring the lees) regularly to promote depth and longevity in the wine
