Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2011 Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay from Sonoma County has superior lots of wine from our vineyards in Alexander, Russian River, Carneros and Dry Creek Valleys. This full-bodied Chardonnay boasts delicious aromas of baked apple, marshmallow, pear, citrus and a hint of graham cracker, perfectly balanced by flavors of Fuji apple, lemon, vanilla and lingering, creamy toasted oak notes.

Ferrari-Carano vineyard practices are customized to match the particular characteristics of each vineyard to help the vines produce the best fruit possible, and to in turn, achieve the best wine possible. Directed by Don Carano and orchestrated under the supervision of Steve Domenichelli, Director of Vineyard Operations, these practices are extremely labor intensive. Steve and his team implement irrigation and nutrient regimes, trellis system and canopy management, rootstock and clone combinations, and pruning and cane selection for each vineyard site and each block within a vineyard. Because of Sonoma County's diverse geological makeup, even within one vineyard parcel there may be several different types of soil with different degrees of nutrients for vines and water-holding capacity. In addition, Steve and his team practice sustainable farming techniques, such as recycling organic matter for use as mulch in the vineyards, planting cover crops and other plant species to avoid soil erosion, add desirable nutrients back to the soil and to attract desirable insects, and integrating animals to naturally enhance biodiversity and nutrient recycling.

A fine Chardonnay, which Ferrari-Carano can usually be depended on to produce. Shows crowd-pleasing flavors of pineapple jam, butterscotch, crème brûlée and vanilla custard. Easy to find, with 42,000 cases produced. - S.H. Sleek and well-balanced, offering subtle green apple, mineral and citrus flavors that whisper delicacy and finesse. Drink now through 2012. 42,000 cases made. -JL Light yellow-gold. Buttery pineapple and melon aromas are brightened by tangy lemon zest and white pepper. A gently sweet midweight, with plump tropical and orchard fruit flavors given definition by dusty minerals. This easy-drinking chardonnay finishes with good breadth and lingering sweetness.

Comprised of three Chardonnay clones, this wine has lush fig, apple, graham cracker, and hazelnut aromas with delicious caramel, pear, mango, and toasty oak flavors with a creamy, buttery finish. The cool climate of Napa Valley Carneros and Russian River Valley imparts its unique delicacy and finesse to the wine, while the Alexander Valley component adds an intensely rich mouth-filling character.
