Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

The aromas of this classic Chardonnay are dominated by honeysuckle with fruit notes of lemon zest, lime leaf, and ripe white peach. There is an underpinning of oak giving a bit of lift and a hint of meringue, but it is far from overbearing. The palate entry is bright and clean, moving quickly from green apple into complex citrus and a touch of tropical fruit. Good mass and density are countered with crisp, linear acidity which is in turn balanced by a subtle oak sweetness. The long finish rounds it all off with fresh lime and juicy peach.

Vineyard

In 1982, Dennis and Judy Groth purchased the 44-acre Hillview Estate in the Oak Knoll District, just south of Yountville. This single-vineyard wine is made exclusively from Chardonnay grown on a 26-acre block there originally planted in 1996 and 1998. This cooler site produces Chardonnay with beautiful fruit notes and bright acidity that is a perfect complement to food. The vineyard is sustainably farmed and became Napa Green/Fish Friendly Farming certified in 2014.

Pairing

Enjoy this Chardonnay with grilled fish, roasted chicken, or just a summer evening among friends.
