Educated Guess Chardonnay 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The Educated Guess Chardonnay is crafted from grapes grown in the prestigious Napa Valley wine districts of Oak Knoll and Mount Veeder. Our Chardonnay was produced in two distinct ways using both traditional barrel fermentation as well as stainless steel fermentation. Our goal is to provide you a delicious crisp Chardonnay that is not the typical over-oaked and heavily weighted style that is so common today. Our Chardonnay showcases delicious ripe pear, melon, and green apple fruit characteristics, while retaining bright acidity and creamy vanilla notes. Created with the philosophy that superb Napa Valley Chardonnay can be affordable, this wine is indistinguishable in quality from its higher-priced Napa Valley competitors.

  Educated Guess is a value-priced wine brand created by the Roots Run Deep Winery in Napa Valley, California. The name signifies the various conclusions to be made regarding wine on all fronts. From the winemaking side, decisions must be made about where to grow, what to grow, how to grow it, aging techniques, pricing, packaging, etc. They also considered decisions made by consumers in wine stores and how their personal knowledge plays into that, such as selecting the right wine to match specific foods, knowing which wine presents the most value for the money, knowing a particular grape, region, brand or producer from experience, or even just connecting with a label design. But if you’re unsure what to do in a particular situation, sometimes you just have to go with environmental clues and make an educated guess.    It doesn’t hurt that the label designed for Educated Guess is deliberately eye-catching and clever. It depicts the actual chemical formulas for aspects of winemaking.  Read less

Sourced from Mt. Veeder and Oak Knoll, the Educated Guess Chardonnay is fermented in both stainless steel and barrel - hitting a good balance between crisp and fruity and rich and toasty. A great value for the money.

Winemaker Notes - This is not your typical Napa Chardonnay. By combining the characteristics that both traditional barrel fermentation and stainless steel ferment provide, we were able to retain the delicious tropical fruit flavors, while also giving the customer what they have come to love in Chardonnay creamy notes, toast, spice and vanilla without being overdone in any way. No stick of butter and a 2 x 4 Chardonnay here! Very food friendly and crowd pleasing!
