Kak. I just have a hard time even smelling Chards - this one is a typical dry Chardonnay. I would need to add 7up & oranges. That's about it. Read more

Not bad. Flavors were not huge here; what was present reminded me mostly of chardonnay. Read more

Lightly nutty on the nose with some almond and vanilla wood tones giving this a creamy aroma. A little soft on entry with a touch of rs lending this a particularly creamy mouthfeel supported by good acidity. This is nutty on the palate as well with an almond ice cream accent to the core of apple fruit that is round and simple in a fruity style. The touch of RS is washed away on the finish by the fresh acidity. Not my style but well made. 84pts

This delicious white is crafted with a "dual harvest technique" wherein half of the crop is taken in mid-August when acid is still prevalent in the fruit, and then other half is picked 3-4 weeks later, when more sugar has developed.

The story of Peirano is one fit for the cinema; it practically screams out for Francis Ford Coppola's treatment. A sweeping tale of poor Italian immigrant turned properous, Giacomo Peirano, who planted vines in the mining country of Lodi in the late 1800s; the trials and travails of his family, the early deaths of two sons, the bootlegging of their Zinfandel crop during Prohibition, sons going of to the great wars overseas, tragic dalliance with early flight...and through it all they made good wine as a family. Today this legacy rests in the hands of fourth-generation winemaker Lance Randolph. Lance's methods in the vineyard are what he calls "Old World meets New World"...that is to say, very natural, but in keeping with the science of the trade. Most intriguing is his "dual harvest technique" wherein half of the crop is taken in mid-August when acid is still prevalent in the fruit, and then other half is picked 3-4 weeks later, when more sugar has developed.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Grown on our estate in the heart of the Lodi Appellation, the fruit for this Chardonnay was hand selected and hand harvested. Careful attention was taken in the vineyard, through canopy management, such as leaf pulling, as well as cluster thinning to prompt the vine to focus its attention on the remaining clusters. We employ a dual harvest technique with the Chardonnay. Half of the block is harvested in mid to late August, when the fruit still has firm acids. The other half is picked from 3-4 weeks later, when the grapes are bursting with sugars.The aromas of vanilla, lemon meringue pie, and tangerines are complemented by hints of buttery notes entice a sip. The mouth fills with tropical fruit, homemade lemon pie and vanilla, which round out the wine and leave a lingering finish." -Winery
