Wine maker notes
Vintage 2011
The fruit for Starmont Chardonnay is grown in our favorite cooler areas of the Napa Valley, including the Oak Knoll District and Carneros, including our Stanly Ranch Estate Vineyard, where the maritime influence keeps the focus on crisp, vibrant fruit. The fruit was carefully sorted and whole-cluster pressed to preserve freshness. The light oak treatment gives a round mouth feel and improved complexity, while highlighting the fruit driven focus of the wine.

Color: golden straw
Aroma: crisp apple, tangerine, apricot tart, citrus blossom, white flowers, subtle toast, vanilla, stone fruit
Taste: bright focused entry to a round, fleshy mid-palate; apple, citrus and stone fruit with a hint of toast and spice; long, lingering finish.
