James Ewart grew up making wine at the side of his father, one of Australia’s great Chardonnay winemakers. James is one of a very few winemakers who have also completed a graduate diploma in grape growing (viticulture), from the University of Adelaide in 1999. This followed his undergraduate degree specializing in geology, soils, and chemistry – valuable knowledge when matching Noble Vines’ time-honored vines to specific locations with one of North America’s leading viticulturists, vineyard manager Charlie Hossom.

James’ experience includes Mountadam Winery, under the tutelage of David Wynn, known for his pioneering work with Cabernet and Syrah in Coonawarra, Australia, Cloudy Bay in Marlborough, and his family’s estate in the Adelaide Hills. A brief stint at Noble Vines’ San Bernabe Vineyard in 2000 turned into a career there when Monterey County legend Bill Petrovic recognized James’ skill in making wine with a vineyard-based philosophy. James is proud to carry on Mr. Petrovic’s legacy at the Noble Vines Collection.

Tasting Notes

On the nose, aromas of ripe pear, pineapple, and melon. On the palate, flavors of peach and coconut, with hints of lemon and toasty vanilla spice. Medium-bodied and slightly creamy, pair with a selection of cheese, pasta in a white sauce, and/or your favourite seafood dish.

Method

Made from 100% Chardonnay, the grapes come from vineyards in the Monterey region and are Clone 4 Chardonnay grapes. The wine rests in French and American oak for 5-6 months before bottling and release.
