2017 Napa Chardonnay
The heights of Atlas Peak in Napa Valley allow the Chardonnay to grow in a cooler environment than the valley floor. This slower ripening maintains refreshing acidity balancing the full fruit flavors. Aged 10 months in French oak, the vanilla nuances integrate with the lively fruit on the palate.
Atlas Peak is the new source for our Chardonnay. Perched 600 feet above the valley floor, it has a somewhat harsh growing climate and delivers gorgeous fruit. Made in a crisp style, this wine is malolactiv negative, which means no buttery characteristics.
