Nice round Sterling chardonnay from Napa. A touch of oak and some butter, with medium- acidity. Ripe pear and some butterscotch fill in the corners of this somewhat round offering.

Aromas and flavors of fresh pear and ripe apple mingle with vanilla and oak spice from barrel fermentation and aging. Up front, crisp Asian pear, pippin apple and tropical fruit guide the entry, balanced by notes of caramel, ginger and clove. Across the middle, the Carneros grapes show their face, lifting the silky fruit with a distinct lemon essence and sprightly minerality that carries through the finish. Well balanced, with layers of fruit and spice, this wine makes a versatile food companion.

This Chardonnay shows the beauty and complexity of the Napa Valley, marrying the lush, bold ripeness of the mid-valley with the richness and depth of Carneros. Fragrant oak spices, honey and tropical fruits open the nose. On the palate, layers of golden apples, peach, lemon curd and caramel are lifted by a bright citrus finish, flanked by toasty spices. The elegant, full-bodied style of this Chardonnay can stand up to fleshy seafood and grilled meats alike. - WineryVarietal Composition:98.2% Chardonnay0.5% Viognier0.4% Pinot Gris0.9% otherAlcohol: 14.5%Acidity: 5.9 g/LpH: 3.49

Our Sterling Vineyards Napa Valley Chardonnay comes from the southern half of Napa Valley, including vineyards in the cool Carneros region as well as the warmer Rutherford region. Aromas and flavors of fresh pear and ripe apple mingle with vanilla and oak spice from barrel fermentation and aging.
