Napa Cellars Chardonnay 2021

Product description

Grapes for this Napa Cellars Chardonnay were selected primarily from vineyards in Napa Valley with a portion from nearby Clarksburg AVA. The climates in these areas of California provide ideal conditions for growing Chardonnay. The proximity of Napa’s vineyards to the fog and breeze from San Francisco and Marin Bay creates a mild, Mediterranean climate.

Similarly, the climate in Clarksburg features warm days tempered by cool maritime winds and fog, which move inland from San Francisco Bay. These conditions help produce Chardonnay with full-bodied flavors balanced by minerality and energetic acidity. The Chardonnay grapes are carefully hand-picked, harvested and crushed. Fermented and aged in 100% French oak barrels, 21% of which were new, this wine completes malolactic fermentation and undergoes lees stirring for five months.
