    Winemaker's Notes

    Sihouette is Merryvales most lavish Chardonnay -- a combination of Napa ripeness and Burgundian complexity. This wine was selected barrel-by-barrel from our finest Napa Valley Chardonnay lots. The vineyards are planted predominantly with old Wente vine selections that produce low yields and concentrated, intensely flavored fruit. Each lot was fermented in a majority of new French oak barrels from our favorite Burgundian coopers. Some of the wine was fermented with native yeast, a method that accentuates the richness of the wines mouthfeel. The wine is rich and complex with a long silky, toasty oak finish.

    "Well-structured, with complex creamy pear, anise, cedar, fig and vanilla. Finishes with a long intricate aftertaste that keeps pumping out the flavors. Drink now. 2,000 cases made." - Wine Spectator
