2015 PlumpJack Chardonnay
Our Chardonnay grapes are sourced from two vineyards in the Napa Valley - one in Los Carneros and the other in St. Helena. The cooler Carneros site imparts this wine with fresh green apple, Bosc pear, and lemon zest on the nose, while the warmer St. Helena site lends some tropical and melon notes. The touch of oak adds subtle layers to the nose and palate with traces of toasted almonds, vanilla, and spice. By foregoing malolactic fermentation , we are retaining the bright, lively malic acid, which helps to accentuate the fruit on the palate, and gives this wine its balance and drive.
