The 2007 vintage was one of the best in recent memory. After a normal bud break, the valley experienced mild weather through the growing season with a slightly cooler summer and warm September. This climate resulted in slow, even ripening with a crop just slightly smaller than normal, and the highly desired small berry size. Winemakers across the valley are very excited about the 2007 vintage.
Food friendly elegance and varietal nuance are the hallmarks of our 2007 Starmont Chardonnay. Bright notes of pear and crisp red apple are framed by spice, mineral, toast and vanilla bean. The wine is round on the palate with a long, easy finish. Our favorite food pairings include lemon and herb roasted chicken and sole meuniére.
