At Duckhorn Vineyards, we have been making wine using grapes from the finest Napa Valley vineyards for over 35 years. Building on this rich history, our Napa Valley Chardonnay comes from the coolest regions. In the cellar, we applied classic techniques of French oak barrel fermentation with lees stirring, resulting in a Chardonnay that balances the complexity and richness of Napa Valley.
From its gorgeous aromas of nectarine, vanilla and cream to its bright entry and rich, silky
texture, this is a vibrant and complex Chardonnay. On the palate, flavors of pear, peach,
chai and wildflowers are elegantly framed by delicate hints of French oak, all leading to a
long and mineral-driven finish.

acidity. We had one of our earliest harvests in the past decade, with our first white grapes
arriving at the winery on July 31st. A light rain in mid-September nourished the vines,
while providing welcome additional hangtime. Overall, the quality of the fruit was
exceptional, with our white wines showing both richness and complexity, and our red
grapes displaying a fine balance between elegance and intensity, with gorgeous dark fruit
