Winemaker Notes

Our 2018 Chardonnay is sourced from vineyards in Carneros and Oak Knoll. Fermented in stainless steel, then aged three months on the lees in neutral French oak, the wine shows great acidity, weight, and mouth-feel. This 100% Chardonnay shows acidity normally reserved for stainless only wines. This is a beautifully balanced Chardonnay.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Hindsight Chardonnay is full, yet lively on the palate and in the finish. TASTING NOTES: This wine brings ripe fruit, oak, and a slight creaminess to the fore. Enjoy it with braised chicken thighs in a piquant, citrus, wine reduction sauce. (Tasted: August 25, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

Hindsight Vineyards represents an ambitious dream set in motion a decade ago to create world-class, yet reasonably priced Napa Valley wines.

As a small boutique wine producer, they strive to create

sustainably produced, hand-crafted, extraordinary wines at a reasonable price. Hindsight Vineyards believes all wine lovers should have the opportunity to experience Napa Valley’s finest wines without breaking the bank.

The Napa Valley soil and climate offers the perfect grape-growing conditions and produces arguably the best, and therefore the most expensive grapes in the United States.

One of the world's most highly regarded regions for wine production as well as tourism, the Napa Valley was responsible for bringing worldwide recognition to California winemaking. In the 1960s, a few key wine families settled the area and hedged their bets on the valley's world-class winemaking potential—and they were right.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980s, when producers scooped up vineyard lands and planted vines throughout the county. A number of wineries emerged, and today Napa is home to hundreds of producers ranging from boutique to corporate. Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely the grape of choice here, with many winemakers also focusing on Bordeaux blends. Napa whites are usually Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that claim specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil. Farthest south and coolest from the influence of the San Pablo Bay is Carneros, followed by Coombsville to its northeast and then Yountville, Oakville and Rutherford. Above those are the warm St. Helena and the valley's newest and hottest AVA, Calistoga. These areas follow the valley floor and are known generally for creating rich, dense, complex and smooth red wines with good aging potential. The mountain sub appellations, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs, include Stags Leap District, Atlas Peak, Chiles Valley (farther east), Howell Mountain, Mt. Veeder, Spring Mountain District and Diamond Mountain District. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from a lot of time in the bottle to evolve and soften.

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.
