    Winemaker Notes

    The cool growing region of Carotenes allows the winery to keep the verve and complexity in its Chardonnay -- and delivers just the right amount of naturally bright acidity that works well when paired with the nest French oak. Aromas of fresh cantaloupe, Jasmin blossom and pear work well, all underscored by more subtle oak-derived notes of brioche and creme brulee. On the palate, the character of the wine leans in the Californian direction, with cut melon, a touch of pineapple and Asian pear. This is all tied together by balanced structure and enough oak to add complexity without overwhelming the fruit.

    Clos Pegase, California
    Clos Pegase Winery Image
    Completed in 1987, Clos Pegase was designed to be a temple to wine on a 47 acre Calistoga vineyard. The winery has a total of 450 acres, mostly located in Carneros. The Clos Pegase label features Pegasus, painted circa 1890 by the French artist Redon. This painting is winery owner Jan Shrem's favorite work of art from his extensive private collection.

    Known for elegant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. The cooling winds from the abutting San Pablo Bay, combined with lots of midday California sunshine, create an ideal environment for producing wines with a perfect balance of crisp acidity and well-ripened fruit.

    This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Carneros is an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of Champagne as well.

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
