Wine maker notes
The 2013 Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay has superior lots ofwine from our vineyards in Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Russian River Valley and Carneros. This full-bodied Chardonnay boasts aromas of pear, green apple, honeydew, orange, lychee and peach perfectly balanced by a fruity entry with refreshing acidity with flavors of Meyer lemon, honeysuckle, vanilla, pineapple and a floral finish.

Technical notes
Vintage Notes
Overall, 2013 was a very good year with ideal weather conditions for the vines. Spring produced great set and average rainfall led to normal and above-normal yields. Consistently warm temperatures during the summer months without any heat spikes or major rain events allowed for longer “hang time” leading to fully ripe flavors.

Winemaker Notes
Over 60 individual Chardonnay lots are gently destemmed, pressed, then cold settled for two days in stainless steel tanks before moving to barrels for fermentation. Aged separately in French oak, the wine completes 96 percent malolactic fermentation, then is sur lie aged and stirred every two weeks until blending.


Food pairing
This versatile Chardonnay pairs perfectly with seafood, poultry, white meats and dishes with cream sauces. Try preparations that include citrus, butter, cream, cheese, bacon, nutmeg, thyme, basil or toasted nuts.
