2020 Chardonnay, Hillview Vineyard, Napa Valley

Groth
Napa Green Certified

This single-vineyard Napa Valley Chardonnay is sourced exclusively from the Groth family’s Hillview Estate south of Yountville. This limited-production wine highlights the beautiful fruit — with sweet peach, citrus and exotic tropical notes, along with an underlying minerality — that so often exemplifies white wines from the Oak Knoll District.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

The 2020 vintage produced beautifully expressive Chardonnay from our Hillview Estate. Initial aromas display classic notes of citrus and pineapple, as well as the other tropical fruits that are a hallmark of this wine. There is also a fragrant, dried apple note, along with fresh pastry dough, lemon curd and dried sage. Spice and toast from the barrel aging come through in the aroma and the flavor of the wine. This Chardonnay is rich and viscous on the palate, with flavors of citrus, marmalade and apricot that lead to a full, lingering finish.

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 Fish Friendly Farming certified.

Pairing

Enjoy with a variety of seafood, pastas with cream-based sauces or a grilled turkey burger.
