Saddleback's popular Napa Valley Chardonnay. Chardonnay is selected from our Oakville estate vineyards, and supplemented with selections from Carneros and Mt Veeder in Napa Valley as well. On the nose, a luscious fragrance of honeysuckle, ripe red apple and butterscotch. With its lighter body, this wine is bright and lively with creamy lemon meringue high notes and vanilla bean undertones. Savor the silky finish. This wine defies the dated stereotypes of Chardonnay, instead providing a balanced and lighthearted, satisfying and refreshing accompaniment to food or conversation.

Vineyard Notes
Grapes harvested from vineyards in Oakville, Carneros and Mt Veeder subdistricts of the Napa Valley AVA
Production Notes
Brix: 24.5. After whole-cluster pressing and cold settling, the juice was racked into small stainless steel fermenters and inoculated with CY3079 yeast. Then, the juice was transferred to 60-gallon Nevers and Allier Burgundy-shaped barrels, of which 45% were new French oak, for the start of barrel fermentation. The wine remained sur-lees for nine months, stirred every 10 days. The wine did not go through malolactic fermentation.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs excellently with butter- and cream-sauced dishes, triple-cream brie and dried apricots or fig jam, fish and seafood dishes.
