Vintage 2015
Wine Type White
Varietal Chardonnay
Region Napa Valley
Winemaker Harry Hansen

Sterling Viñedos Napa Valley Chardonnay es un color dorado luminoso, luz en el vidrio con fragantes aromas de crema de limón, cítrico, crujiente de manzana y tostadas avellana. La nariz invitación lleva a un paladar rico textured con sabores de frutas cítricas, de piedra y un carácter de miel almendra. El vino es equilibrado entre una redondez elegante, cremosa y una línea de acidez brillante. El acabado agradable es sabroso y persistente.

Vineyard Notes

The Sterling Vineyards Napa Valley Chardonnay comes from a selection of prestigious vineyards throughout the region. This includes vineyards from the warmer, mid-valley area of Rutherford and Oak Knoll Ranch, giving the wine its plush roundness, fruit-forward characteristics. A small amount of Chardonnay fruit also comes from the southern, cooler reaches of the Carneros region adding balanced acidity to the rich fruit flavors.

Winemaking Notes

The Chardonnay fruit was harvested in the cool morning hours and sent directly to press at the winery. The majority of the fruit was barrel fermented in French (75%) and American (25%) oak to impart rich texture and added spice notes. In the 2015 vintage only a small portion of the blend (10%) was fermented in stainless-steel tanks to capture bright fruit character and retain fresh acidity. The final wine is elegant and shows a core of beautiful fruit character with balanced, bright acidity.
