Lush nose of white nectarine, peaches, jasmine and meyer lemon. Tangy kumquat, Rampur lime, stone fruit, and chamomile on the palate with vibrant acid and a long layered finish. Nice mineral notes.


When sourcing Chardonnay fruit, we seek those Carneros vineyards that offer diversity in both aspects and clonal selection. The result is a complex and vibrant Chardonnay most reflective of the Carneros region.

Appellation: Carneros, Napa

Terroir: Carneros is known for its loam and clay soils; a mixture of flat land and rolling hillside s and has the reliable marine fog that rolls in at evening t and burns off in the mid-morning.


After night harvesting, the Chardonnay fruit arrives at Saintsbury within the hour of its pick. The clusters are sorted and transferred directly to a gentle, whole cluster press. The settled juice then goes to barrel for fermentation. During its 8 months in French oak barrels, we employ bâtonnage to ensure a complex and well-balanced wine. The wine was bottled in June and finished with a Stelvin screwcap closure.
