Description

Sterling Napa Valley wines show the depth, strength and expressive quality of California’s most famous wine region. Fruit for Sterling wines is grown throughout Napa Valley, from the cool southern Carneros region next to San Pablo Bay to the rugged northernmost benchlands and reaches near our Calistoga homeplace. Reserve wines allow Sterling winemaker Harry Hansen to select the finest lots to create the most memorable expressions of the varietal for each vintage.

    Wine Advocate

    “Coming mainly from Star Ranch vineyard in Rutherford, the 2018 Chardonnay Reserve was fermented in 100% French oak, 70% new, and aged for 16 months. The nose is redolent of spiced pears, ripe peaches and lemon curd with hints of cedar, allspice and brioche. Medium to full-bodied, the palate gives up mouth-coating stone fruit and citrus layers with a satiny texture and oodles of freshness, finishing long and spicy.” - Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW

Harry Hansen - Winemaker

Director of Winemaking Harry Hansen was raised in nearby Sonoma County. “One of my earliest memories of wine was the gallon jug of red wine that we always had at home. I would go with my father to a local winery, maybe in Kenwood or Healdsburg, to refill that jug and chit-chat with the winery proprietors. The aromas of those wines were always something attractive, somehow mysterious, but always memorable.”
Harry joined Sterling Vineyards and relocated to Napa Valley just before the 2011 Harvest. “The opportunity to join such a respected Napa Valley winery is exciting and a fantastic next step in my winemaking career. Sterling Vineyards is making some wonderful wines, and I look forward to taking that next step up in quality and reputation.”
