Winemaker's Notes:

Consistent with Silverado's retro-California style of Chardonnay, this wine has aromas of citrus, vanilla, pineapple with floral undertones and a crème brulee note to the oak and malolactic component. A light to medium body with vanilla, citrus and apple flavors round out the moderately long finish.
My Notes:

About Silverado Vineyards:

In the heart of Napa Valley's Stags Leap District sits a rocky peak with a spectacular Mediterranean-style stone winery perched on top. That winery is the iconic Silverado Vineyards, established in 1981 by Ron and Diane Disney Miller. Thirty years later, three generations of Miller Family continue to source grapes entirely from their family-owned estate Napa vineyards. From berry to bottle, each vine growing and wine making step is dedicated to expressing the character of grapes grown on each of the wineries six historic vineyards. Expressing richness and age-worthiness, Silverado wines are unique, one-of-a-kind blends of superlative vineyard location and elegant winemaking style.
