Winemaker's Notes:

This Chardonnay displays mineral and flint from the cooler sites; tropical fruit, pear and honey from the warmer site. The mild oak adds a hint of vanilla and hazelnut. Aromas of fresh white pearmain apple, citrus, honeysuckle with a subtle layer of toasty oak that adds complexity without diminishing the upfront fruit. On the palate, a medium body with fresh fruit flavors on entry, finishes with a delightful marmalade and light butter essence.

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.
