Conversations with the Winemaker: The grapes comprising the 2017 Chardonnay blend are from two vineyards — picked at first light so the grapes are dewy and brilliant and reflective of nature’s bounty. The clones are a mix of Old Wente, Dijon and Clone 4. The wine was barrel fermented and sur lie-aged for 11 months in Baron and Saury French Oak, 58% new. Lees were stirred every three weeks until a month before racking out of barrel for blending and bottling.
Wine Profile: The Foreverness Chardonnay, adorned with its crystal is the perfect selection for celebrating in the moment with friends and loved ones. This beautiful golden 2017 Napa Valley Chardonnay opens up with aromas of white floral and graham cracker and a touch of honeysuckle. Rich flavors of sweet oak and stone fruit are balanced with notes of Tahitian vanilla and cinnamon stick. Creamy and spreading across the palate with bright acidity, this wine pairs well with spontaneous reunions and family gatherings.
