Sterling Chardonnay


750 ML


Product Description

We hand harvested the fruit for the Sterling Vineyards Napa Valley Chardonnay during the cool morning hours. After lots of hand sorting, the grapes were whole-cluster pressed. We then barrel fermented 90% of the wine, and stainless steel fermented the remainder, at a cellar temperature of 50 degrees to maintain fruit and develop overall textural complexity. After 6 months of aging we lightly filtered and bottled the wine. Light straw in color, our Napa Valley Chardonnay offers a rich, creamy entry with flavors of ripe pear and apple, vanilla and spice followed by a long, fruity/toasty finish. Enjoy our 2005 Napa Valley Chardonnay with a variety of foods, including Caesar salad, fried chicken, and fresh fish in cream sauce.
