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.
