About this product
The 2018 Chardonnay is made from Celani Family VineyardÂs estate grown in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. The Chardonnay was fermented on its own lees in 40% new French oak barrels with the remainder in selfstirring concrete eggs. Malolactic fermentation was inhibited in order to retain the natural grape acidity. The result is a wine exploding with aromas of crisp green apples, spring wildflowers, pineapple and kiwi fruit. As the wine opens, secondary aromas of tangerine peel, apple blossoms, beeswax and roasted almonds begin to emerge. The palate is simultaneously seamless and rich with a weight and viscosity that is balanced nicely by the intense yellow orchard fruit flavors. This delicious wine has a lasting finish with persisting, lively acidity.
