Winemaker Notes

Winemaking

These Chardonnay grapes were hand harvested at night to preserve fruit character. Due to the geological diversity of our estate, we harvest blocks based upon optimum ripeness and flavor maturity. The grapes were whole cluster pressed, and the juice was fermented in barrels and aged sur lie, with the lees stirred every two weeks for 5-6 months. 100% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged in French oak barrels (31% new) for 8 months.

Tasting Notes

The 2006 Carneros Chardonnay shows aromas of fresh flowers and tropical mango and pineapple fruit against a creamy, toasty background. In the mouth it shows intense apple, vibrant citrus, honeydew and pear notes through the creamy, subtly toasty finish. It's a classic example of Carneros Chardonnay.

"Buena Vista comes through again with a stellar Chardonnay for everyday drinking. From its opening aromas of ripe apples, grain and creamy oak to its medium-full weight and supple feel all the way to its attractively fruity and smooth finish, this wine simply invites itself to the table with foods like roasted chicken. And, its price makes it a wine to keep at the top of your shopping list." 89 Points

Buena Vista, , California
Buena Vista
Founded in 1857 as California's first premium winery, Buena Vista, under the direction of winemaker Jeff Stewart, is a leader in cool-climate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Merlot and Syrah. Straddling Sonoma County in the southern end of the Carneros appellation, the 523-acre Ramal Vineyard Estate is broken up into 167 small blocks, with 21 different clones of Chardonnay and 13 different clones of Pinot Noir, and is set along rolling south-facing hillsides overlooking the San Pablo Bay. The Ramal Vineyard is the crown jewel of all Carneros.

Most winemakers will agree that cool-climate wines like Pinot Noir are the most difficult to produce. And most will agree that Jeff Stewart does so with unparalleled success. Jeff comes to Buena Vista with over 15 years of achievement in cool-climate viticulture and his focus on gentle handling of the grapes and temperature moderation produces wines with complexity, character and depth.
