About Butternut ... Butternut was created by Napa power-duo Orin Swift's Dave Phinney and Whitehall Lane's Tony Leonardini. The Butternut brand was thoughtfully made after an "experiment" with 5 barrels from the Orin Swift cellar to create the perfect Chardonnay, "your Mother's Chardonnay". It was beautiful, buttery, oaked but they didn't have a name for it. It was Tony Leonardini's wife who walked in with a box of freshly harvested butternut squash in the California sun and a light went off ... Butternut was born.
Butternut wines are the perfect affordable, any day of the week wines!
Tasting Notes ... Aromatics of peach, hazelnut and spiced candied apple. The palate is a luxurious with a blend of fig, butterscotch and oak along with a refreshing finish. 100% new French oak to create a buttery and irresistible Chardonnay.
