This special centennial Chardonnay has aromas of fresh lemon, yellow peach and pineapple with hints of apple, caramel and vanilla bean. The wine exhibits a lovely, soft texture that opens up to a beautiful array of citrus and stone fruit flavors followed by a vibrant acidity and subtle minerality leading to a deeply aromatic long finish.
For this wine they select only the best grapes, which are primarily from our oldest block of Chardonnay, the Old Wente clone planted in 1989. Through a combination of clone, age and cool climate, this single block in their estate vineyard in the chilly Carneros region of Napa Valley creates wonderfully rich flavors, balanced with crisp acidity. They farm all of our certified organic vineyards naturally, using the principles of regenerative agriculture.
