ORIGIN: We are proud to continue harvesting fruit from one of the few chardonnay vineyards remaining in the Stags Leap District. Our chardonnay is grown on the cooler east and north facing hillsides from a planting of clones from the research station in Dijon, France, as well as the Corton Charlemagne Burgundian clone. The Corton clone dates from 1964, one of the oldest plantings of chardonnay in the Napa Valley.
VINEYARD: San Pablo Bay marine influences combined with the unusual geography of Stags Leap District provide moderate temperatures, foggy mornings, and warm late afternoons throughout the growing season. This unique climate results in slow, even fruit development on the east and north facing sites of our vineyard and enhances the cool growing conditions found in the Stags Leap District. Three different soil types, Perkins gravelly loam, Boomer gravelly loam, and Kid loam, typify the shallow topsoil that overlays the igneous and rhyolitic shale of the upland slopes of this vineyard.
WINEMAKING: Pine Ridge estate-bottled Chardonnays are 100% barrel-fermented, 100% malolactic, and aged in contact with their yeast lees. After hand sorting, the grapes were whole cluster pressed. The juice was racked to new, heavily-toasted French oak barrels for native yeast and malolactic fermentation. Aged on the yeast lees for nine months to add creamy, yeasty flavors and texture, the wine was bottled in July 2000.
TASTING NOTES: Silky layers of tropical fruits surface with a hint of creamy oak throughout the long, smooth finish in this medium-full bodied, bright yellow Chardonnay. Enjoy now or cellar for five to ten years.

of Pine Ridge Vineyards blend gracefully with the natural rise
and fall of the land. Year after year, the wines of Pine...Read More About Pine Ridge
It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley
