The 2011 Querencia has generous aromas of watermelon, lemon and mandarin orange. It’s fruitful nose is accentuated by developed aromas of apricot crumb cake and brioche.
The palate sustains lasting flavors of ruby red grapefruit, lemon custard and strawberry, which linger with a long, crisp and mouthwatering finish.
Querencia is produced solely from fruit grown in the Napa Valley Carneros region. This vintage is sold out.
Harvest Dates: August 30 - October 13, 2011
Chardonnay forms the blend's core, providing a relatively light-bodied, crisp and tangy palate. Small additions of Pinot Noir fermented with skin contact add berry brightness and color. Barrel Fermentation: 45%
