Fisher Family Chardonnay 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Pure mountain minerality, with aromas of orange blossom and ripe pear drizzled in honey. The palate opens with a vast expanse of flavors ranging from freshly cut pineapple with coconut shavings to sweet floral notes of jasmine accompanied by fresh crisp acidity. Intense and weighty on the finish the Mountain Estate culminates where it began with bosc pear and honeysuckle flavors that linger with you. 91-94 Points Robert Parkers Wine Advocate This estate has always accomplished impressive things with Chardonnay. Their newest offering is a Mountain Estate Vineyard Chardonnay fashioned from some of the newer Burgundian Dijon Clones along with Californias Old Wente Clone. The 2005 Chardonnay Mountain Estate Vineyard (500 cases), which was put through partial malolactic, exhibits notes of white currants, juicy lemons, honeysuckle, and a hint of minerals. The wine is crisp, medium to full-bodied, and long in the finish. It is another example of just how compelling the 2005 vintage can be for the top Chardonnay producers. 93 Points James Laube, The Wine Spectator A big, bold, ripe style, with tiers of earth, pear, apple, and citrus shaded by light toasty oak. Despite its size, it manages to offer a measure of finesse, with creamy vanilla and hazelnut showing on the finish. Drink now through 2009. Tasted twice, with consistant notes. 527 cases made.<br/><br/>

The winery was founded in 1973, when Fred and Juelle purchased 100 acres in the Mayacamas Mountains on the western slope of Spring Mountain. There, they built a winery tucked in among the vines and Douglas Firs. The winery itself is a product of the estate, having been built from the timber that was cut and milled on-site and crafted into an award-winning facility by their good friend and architect, William Turnbull. In 1976, the family found another 57 acres on the Silverado Trail in the Napa Valley. The property runs from the Napa River to the Eastern Vaca Range, adjacent to the famed Eisele Vineyard, and is the source of our Lamb Vineyard Cabernet, Coach Insignia Cabernet and Cameron, Bordeaux Blend.
