Rombauer Vineyards began producing Chardonnay in 1982. In 1990, the Rombauer family made their first Chardonnay from the Carneros region, where San Pablo Bay meets the southern end of Napa and Sonoma valleys. There, the cool climate and clay soils offer ideal conditions for growing superior Chardonnay with the Rombauer hallmarks ”intense fruit flavors balanced by fresh acidity".

WINEMAKING
The grapes were gently whole-cluster pressed while the fruit was still cool. The juice was pumped to tank to cold-settle overnight before it was racked to barrel for primary and malolactic fermentation. The lees were stirred every two weeks to give the wine rich flavors and a creamy texture.

TASTING NOTES

Enticing aromas of vanilla, melon and mango are layered with apricot, creme brulee, butter and a slight minerality. Those scents are echoed as flavors on the creamy, rich palate, along with peach, pie crust and baking spices. The long, smooth finish is marked by mouthwatering acidity.


Ratings & Reviews


90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2017 Chardonnay features compelling spiced apples, almond croissant, honeyed peaches and fresh baked pear tart notions on the nose. Medium-bodied with a satiny texture, the palate delivers plenty of peaches and savory layers with a racy line and mineral-tinged finish." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Oct 2018)
