Napa Valley, Los Carneros

2016 Chardonnay, Coeurtina

Winemaker's Notes

As a nod to the vein of Cortina soil that runs through the heart (“Couer”) of our Chardonnay 548 planting, the name Coeurtina is good-humored while the wine itself is quite serious. A heady bouquet of white flowers, orange blossoms and honeysuckle, dance with the rich core of nectarine, white peach and fleshy apricot fruit. The wine has wonderful notes of toasty brioche, shaved almonds and clove spice to add layers of intrigue and depth to this full-bodied Chardonnay.
