Flying Horse Chardonnay 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Like the carrousel horse, each of the wines is meticulously hand-crafted and accurately expresses the terroir. Flying Horse Winery is owned by the Smeding family, a four-generation Napa Valley farming family. Hendrik Semding runs the day-to-day winery business, while his wife Lettie is the winemaker. The name is inspired by developer Bryant Morris who originally started the winery and was passionate about restoring vintage carrousels. The art of restoration and the unique quality of restoring the horses to their former glory was a passion that transcended to the art and was an inspiration to their winemaking.

Tasting Notes:

This Chardonnay is a fine unfiltered wine that has flavors of pear, apple, vanilla, oak, honey, a hint of citrus, and a bit of butterscotch on the finish. The Chardonnay expresses a delightful minerality with a good mouthfeel. Unfiltered and barrel fermentated. Aged in 100% French oak.
