Winemaker's Notes:

#63 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

The Neyers Carneros District Chardonnay comes from fruit grown on three parcels. Two of the parcels are planted largely to 'Shot-Wente Selection' Chardonnay, a low-yielding, small berry variant of Chardonnay that has heightened flavor and increased complexity.

About Neyers:

Begun in 1992 by Bruce and Barbara Neyers and their winemaking partner, Ehren Jordan, Neyers Vineyards produces 15,000 cases of wine annually. They rely primarily on Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the Neyers' 50-acre Conn Valley ranch farmed by Hugo and Lupe Maldonado. Additioanl grapes are purchased from a select group of growers, several of which are identified on the labels of wines produced from grapes they have grown. In 1999 Neyers purchased the 30-acre Sage Canyon Winery in the foothills east of Rutherford and have developed that facility for their entire production that also includes Syrah, Grenache, Zinfandel and Chardonnay.
