Whitehall Lane Chardonnay Napa Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Whitehall Lane Carneros Chardonnay 2006 : WINEMAKER NOTES: The Vintage: 2006 was an incredible year in the cool Carneros Appellation. The temperate summer weather made for ideal growing conditions for Chardonnay grapes. The warm days and cool nights were perfect for flavor and acidity development in the grapes. The fruit was harvested on October 6th and October 12th from the Larson Vineyard and Sangiacomo Vineyard in the Sonoma side of Carneros. Winemaking: The wine was barrel fermented in 35% new and 65% one-year-old French oak barrels. It was aged on the yeast lees for seven months. A little more than one-third of the wine was put through malo-lactic fermentation to enhance the wine while retaining crispness and varietal characteristics. Tasting Notes: This wine is driven by rich, complex fruit. It is well balanced with aromas and flavors of honeysuckle, tropical fruit, citrusy fruit and a hint of oak. It has a very long, flavorful finish that lingers.WHITEHALL LANE CARNEROS CHARDONNAY 2006

This offering has complex aromas of lemon, pineapple, some butterscotch and a hint of oak. The wine is medium to full bodied with crisp citrus, apple and fancy oak flavors. It has a long, lingering and flavorful finish.
