Gnarly Head Cellars:
A passion for Zinfandel and a desire to make great Zin, led our winemaking team to Lodi, California's zinfamous appellation.

A passion for Zinfandel and a desire to make great Zin, led our winemaking team to Lodi, California's zinfamous appellation. But it was a sense of fun - wine should be fun, accessible, easy to understand and enjoy - that led us to create Gnarly Head Old Vine Zin. The sight of the free standing "head trained" vines found in older vineyards in California was the inspiration for Gnarly Head Old Vine Zin. These 35 to 80 year old vines have twisted old trunks and branches that spread out in all directions sprouting leaves like unruly umbrellas - truly gnarly heads. The grapes these old vines produce are small and few, but offer big flavor! But Zinfandel is not the only California grape that can be Gnarly. Our winemaking team selects grapes from some of the best vineyards in Northern California for our Gnarly Head Chardonnay, Merlot and Cab (Cabernet Sauvignon). Gnarly Head wines are easy to drink and pair with food, and made to bring people together, to enjoy with laughter, to celebrate past escapades and future adventures. Cheers! Read less

Scent is salty and a little lemony. Flavor is a bit creamy, and tangy lemon.

Gnarly Head Chardonnay raises the bar for this classic varietal. This Chardonnay is a juicy, medium-bodied wine that explodes with bright citrusy aromas of lemon zest, green apple and just a hint of toasty oak. Big bold flavors of citrus and pear with just a touch of vanilla ensure a perfect match with a range of cuisine like chicken curry, grilled shrimp and spaghetti carbonara. - Winery ALCOHOL: 13.5% by volume TOTAL ACID: 0.54g/100ml FINAL pH: 3.41

Our flavorful Chardonnay has bright, tropical fruit aromas and flavors of pineapple, citrus, pear and melon with a touch of vanilla on the finish. Chill down a bottle and enjoy with some Pad Thai, rotisserie chicken, Tex Mex or grilled shrimp kabobs. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

Gets the Chardonnay job done at a fair price. With a touch of smoky oak, the wine shows ripe flavors of peaches, pears and nectarines, and finishes clean and dry.

Good and dry, with a firm scour of acidity and an earthiness to the pineapples and pears. This is a fine everyday Chardonnay at a fair price.
