  • Included:
  • From the Winemaker:
    The term “Reserve” is bantered around so much these days with wine that it has lost a bit of meaning when it comes to having a real definition: Special lots, select vineyards and winemaking practices set to bring out the purest expression of varietal character. Are not most wines made in this manner?
  • About the Wine:
  • How to enjoy:
    Enjoy this brilliant white wine with grilled or baked chicken and fish, creamy pastas, or roasted pork.
  • About the Vineyard:
    Chardonnay comes in a vast array of styles, from numerous appellations. We have chosen to create a Chardonnay that gives the end user a rich and competent representation of the classic style, whether it is from California or Burgundy. Utilizing three distinct clones of Chardonnay, each known for variations of subtle tropical and pome fruit flavors (that’s apple and pear to the serious botanist) and new French oak begins the process of creating the Reference Chardonnay. The grapes for this wine were harvested from the Carter Estate Vineyards; they were hand sorted and lightly pressed to extract the juice, followed by cold settling and gravity racking before initiating fermentation. Fermenting the clarified juice in barrels and aging for months on the spent yeast bodies responsible for the fermentation adds dimension and richness to the wine. In the end, we have created a Chardonnay that can stand as a “Reference” to any of the great selections that California or France has to offer.
