Chardonnay is among the most widely planted grape variety in Napa Valley and by far the most widely planted wine grape in California. The fabulous wines of Chablis and many of our favorite Champagnes are based in this classic varietal. At Rutherford Hill, we have much respect for the noble Chardonnay grape and all our winemaking and viticultural practices are aimed at enhancing the grapes natural charm and stylishness. Expect this 2006 bottling to show refined aromas of citrus and nutmeg lifted by pretty floral tones. The weight is just right; round and soft with a welcome beam of bright acidity binding the wine together.
