Carneros Ranch Chardonnay has bright apple, honey and stone fruit flavors with vibrant acidity and ample toast and spice from new French oak. Aging on sur-lie adds notes of baked bread in the nose as well as suppleness to the palate.
Our cool climate allows us to achieve a ripe and opulent style of Chardonnay that retains ample acidity. Soft, toasty notes from sur-lie aging enhance aromas of citrus and pineapple. We limit the influence of new oak to showcase the effects of soil and climate.
Our 2018 Vermentino has an inviting aromatic profile, with apple, flower, ripe melon, and citrus notes. On the palate, the citrus and green apple flavors are crisp and bright, yet soft, supple, with a hint of minerality.
