Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
“Balance” continues to define this wine as we elegantly blend the Old & New Worlds of Chardonnay. A silky and generous mouthfeel gives way to bright acid, Meyer lemon, green apple & pineapple with buttered biscuit & roasted almond flavors.
Vineyard Notes
Our Honey B Vineyard is located in the Carneros AVA of the Napa Valley. This cool climate growing region is widely recognized for premium Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines which are influenced by the cooling effect of the Pacific Ocean combined with summer fog, warm days, and a long, temperate growing season. We have 20.68 acres planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Syrah and Gewürztraminer. The 2014 harvest was on the early side, this year. We had substantial rain in late February and early March which helped offset another dry winter. Starting with bud break through to veraison and finally ending with harvest, everything was ahead of schedule. Our Honey B Vineyard, in Carneros, had ideal temperatures through harvest which allowed for excellent ripening and a full spectrum of flavors.
Winemaker Notes
Our Chardonnay is whole cluster pressed and then chilled and settled in tank for 3 days. The juice is then racked to 100% French oak barrels where fermentation begins naturally and on native yeasts. After primary fermentation, malolactic fermentation is also allowed to begin, naturally. Once ML commences, barrels are stirred and topped each week for 9 months. The wine then settles for another month before it is racked clean and prepared for bottling.
