Merryvale - Chardonnay - Napa Valley

About This Item

Overview: Wines of distinction crafted in the heart of Napa Valley. Merryvale Vineyards produces wines that are complex, balanced and represent the best of each vintage.

The majority of the fruit for this Chardonnay was grown on our Stanly Ranch Estate Vineyard (84%) with some select lots from neighboring Hyde Vineyard (16%) blended in. These Carneros vineyards’ proximity to the San Pablo Bay keeps them at a cool temperature and brings cool climate characteristics to the wine. Classic Burgundian techniques were used in the production of this wine. The grapes were whole cluster pressed to a combination of new and used French oak barrels, along with some stainless steel drums. The wine was fermented using native yeasts, underwent full malolactic fermentation, minimal stirring and sur lie aging for 11 months.

Tasting Notes: Bright acidity, savory salinity, layered complexity and luscious mouthfeel all converge in this bottle.
