Palate

The honey and lemon flavors characteristic of the Carneros region flood the palate, enhanced by the very subtle use of French Oak barrels. A long, languorous finish encourages you to linger over every sip.

Growing Conditions

The only wine we produce from non-estate fruit.

Bottling

Bottled: June 2005

Winemaking

Signifying a slight change of direction while not forgetting what you love about our Chardonnay, 2004 is the first vintage of Pride Chardonnay where we have reduced the percentage of new oak and malolactic fermentation. The resulting wine displays a charming delicacy and a bright acidity. Fermentation: French Oak.

Aging

French Oak.
