Description

This Californian Chardonnay sources grapes from across the North Coast. Only low to moderate yield vineyards with high quality fruit are selected, some with lively acid, others that lend weight and substance on the palate. A touch of Muscat Canelli grapes add floral touches. Gentle pressing followed by cold and slow fermentation with traditional Chardonnay yeast strains. Post ferment, the wine was aged 4 months on yeast lees in French oak. no malolactic fermentation.

This results in a wine of light gold appearance with aromas of straw, lemon, and oak tones of sweet caramel and hazelnut. The palate is full and rounded yet crisp and fresh with flavours of pear, melon and light citrus tones. Try with seafood, grilled chicken or pork, or pasta with creamy sauce. 

Tony Cartlidge founded Cartlidge & Browne in 1980 in an undistinguished Napa Valley garage. Nearly 40 years later, still sourcing from vineyards across the North Coast as wide ranging as Sonoma to the Sierra foothills, the winery produces high quality, varietally pure Californian wines. Current winemaker Paul Moser focuses on making wines in a fruit driven style in perfect balance with the environment.

Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians
