2018 Vera's Vineyard, Unoaked Chardonnay
Southern Napa, like its neighbor, Carneros, is open to the cooling influence of the San Pablo Bay, so grapes grown here ripen slowly, developing concentrated flavors. Vera’s vineyard, named to honor Vera Trinchero-Torres has a cool micro- climate and chalky soils ideal for producing classic fruit focused Chardonnay.
The 2018 Vera’s Unoaked Chardonnay appeals with a straw yellow color and inviting aromas of white flowers, honey crisp apple and white peaches. Clean and refreshing, this wine has a medium body, a lively, bright palate and clean, crisp, firm acidity. Vibrant flavors of stone fruit and lemon zest give way to a velvety, oily finish completing on a mineral note.
