Greeting with notes of apple blossom and honeysuckle, this Chardonnay shows beautifully forward and bright early on in its life in the bottle. This vintage is fresh and complex with rich tones of creme brulee balancing the citrus. Mouth watering minerality completes to make this a perfect pairing for a multitude of dishes from both land and sea.
Spectacular aromatics are enhanced by a flinty, mineral mouthfeel and lingering finish. Asian pear, summer peach, and honeyed tangerine greet the nose along with fragrant white flowers and fresh Granny Smith apples.
Our Buoncristiani Napa Valley Chardonnay focuses primarily on fruit, minerality and balanced acidity, with secondary flavors of integrated new French oak richness framed by a full mid palate and a lingering finish.
Complex aromas of lemon zest, ripe ruby grapefruit, jalapeno jam, orange sherbert, floral muscat, vanilla, and lemon cream pie entice the senses. On the palate, a creamy texture leads the way to layered flavors of mango, green melon, nectarine, key lime pie, honeysuckle and vanilla wafer. Zesty citrus flavors, tropical fruit and ultra bright acidity linger in the crisp and clean finish.

We sourced fruit for the 2014 Flanagan Chardonnay Bacigalupi Vineyard from one of their top blocks. Bacigalupi was the source of the Chateau Montelena Chardonnay that, famously, beat the French wines at the “Judgement of Paris” tasting in 1976.
