Palmaz Vineyards Chardonnay Napa Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This Napa Valley Chardonnay is a blend of fruit from the rolling hills of the Napa Carneros region and the steep slopes of the Atlas Peak district. Both have ideal cooler climates for Chardonnay making it possible to pick at ripeness with the proper acidity. The Malo-lactic fermentation is allowed to go to completion to soften the palate and add a hint of butter to the aromas of ripe pear, tropical fruits and citrus, and combined with the rich flavors and crisp finish make this a memorable wine.

The Palmazes bought a forgotten stone winery, a fine old house badly in need of renovation, and acres of land that had once produced fine Napa wines. The little valley had been the site of Cedar Knoll Vineyard and Winery, founded in 1881 by Henry Hagen, one of Napa Valley's pioneer winemakers. Henry Hagen produced wines that garnered many awards, including a silver medal at the Paris Exposition of 1889. During that era, Cedar Knoll was one of Napa's premier wineries. The vineyards survived the Wine Country’s phylloxera infestation in the 1890s, but Prohibition was fatal. The winery fell into disrepair and the vineyards lay fallow for nearly eighty years. Today, the vineyards are burgeoning, the restored Hagen house is a family home again, and the winery has been reinvented. Read less
