2022 Carneros Highway Chardonnay 'Nueva'
Produced to capture the essence of Carneros, our 2022 Nueva Chardonnay enjoys an extensive winemaking effort starting with early harvesting to retain natural acidity throughout the process. Barrel fermentation and sur lie aging creates a lusher profile with only hints of oak that contribute touches of toasty, honey-like notes. Malo-lactic fermentation was induced to achieve a round, creamy mid palate but the wine’s focus is on the indigenous fruit characteristics for which Carneros is known. Incredible balance of fruit to minerality. Pairs perfectly with curried chicken salad and Halibut Picatta.
