2014 Chardonnay Farmstead
Zesty aromatics are balanced by a well-textured palate in this crowd pleasing Chardonnay. Incredibly food-friendly, the acidity and freshness are the core of this well-balanced wine.
2014 was one of the warmest and driest vintages on record and Napa Valley certainly experienced the effects of the drought. There was no frost during bud break which contributed to an strong, early set in the vineyard. Warm days and no rain allowed us to harvest a beautiful crop in early weeks of August.
“The classic texture of this varietal shines, while preserving the wine’s
natural acidity. Aromatics of candied lemon, oyster shell and pine forest are in harmony with a fleshy, well-textured palate.” – Tim Wilson
