Artesa Single Vineyard Chardonnay Estate Block 92 Carneros 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

This Chardonnay captures the essence of our Estate Vineyard which is at one of the highest elevations in all of Carneros. The vines on this block produce low yields of small intense berries with concentrated flavors. Distinctive notes of citrus and a hint of jasmine and orange blossom are followed by similar flavors of citrus and stone fruit. It is a full bodied Chardonnay that is well balanced, offers bright acidity and careful oak integration. The wine will age gracefully and develop more complexity over time in the bottle.

Artesa is Napa's newest, most exciting winery. Our architecturally-acclaimed facility opened as Codorniu Napa in 1991, dedicated solely to méthode champenoise sparkling wine production. But in 1997, with the arrival of a world-class winemaker and a $10 million conversion, the winery shifted focus dramatically. Artesa was born with the inaugural release of ultra-premium still wines in September 1999. Artesa (ahr TESS uh) means "craftsman" and connotes "handcrafted" in Catalan, language of Barcelona and our owner, Codorníu, one of the world's largest and oldest wineries. The Codorníu Group actually consists of eight spectacular wineries whose wines are enjoyed daily in over 100 countries around the world. So, while we are Napa's newest, our heritage is rich. We share five centuries of history with 15 generations of a remarkable winemaking family. Read less

Good fresh fruit aromas here with peach and apple notes with a hint of fresh citrus, light smoke and a hint of vanilla. A bit tart in the mouth that quickly turns gently towards apple notes that are quite creamy sloping on to the finish with notes of pleasant toast and wildflower and a hint of light spice adds a nice complexity.
