Duckhorn Vineyards was co-founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in 1976 and has since established itself as one of North America’s top producers of Napa Valley wines. The winery’s seven estate vineyards are located in alluvial fans of Napa Valley and the much sought after Howell Mountain slopes. Winemaker Renee Ary works with each vineyard block separately and harvests when flavours are optimal and tannins are their softest. She approaches winemaking in an artisinal manner, by tasting and blending from close to 200 lots, separately barrel ageing each lot in oak from various cooperages. The result are wines of great finesse, personality and depth.
This Napa Valley Chardonnay comes from the coolest regions in the Valley. The winemaking involves classic techniques of French oak barrel fermentation with lees stirring , resulting in a balanced Chardonnay with complexity and richness that is typical of Napa Valley.
