Neyers 304 Chardonnay (750ml)
Bruce and Barbera Neyers began Neyers Vineyards and Winery in 1991 in the heart of Napa Valley. The move to start his winery was a long time coming. Bruce gained experience working in a variety of wine related positions; a French import company, as an apprentice winemaker in Germany and a 17 year stint at Joseph Phelps Vineyards. In addition to owning and operating a winery, Bruce is also the national sales manager for the importer Kermit Lynch. Bruce`s experience with French wines thanks to working with the Kermit portfolio has had an obvious influence on his own techniques in the vineyard and winery and this shows in the resulting wines.
Neyers Chardonnay grapes are whole cluster pressed rather than crushed. The juice is racked into barrels and fermented with wild yeast and allowed to settle with time as the wine ages over a period of a few months. This process adds a level of richness and complexity to the wine.
