Zesty notes of lime, kumquats, and green pineapple. On the palate this wine is energetic from the start with tangy citrus, white peach, and clove.

VINEYARDS

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.

WINEMAKING

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.
