Winemaker Notes

A white wine for red wine lovers, this wine is produced entirely from grapes grown in the Carneros district on Shafer's Red Shoulder Ranch, named for the resident hawks that play an important part in Shafer's natural practices. The vineyard is planted to five different low-yielding Chardonnay clones selected for their distinctive flavors. Fermented in French and American oak using wild yeast, the wine undergoes no malolactic fermentation, so it retains its natural fruit flavors and natural acidity. The Chardonnay remains in barrel for a total of 15 months, the lees stirred weekly to create a rich, creamy texture.

Chardonnay

California’s most praised white wine, Chardonnay is also the state’s most planted white grape variety. Diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredible range of wine styles.

Chardonnay planted in the cooler, coastal zones takes on bright characteristics like lemon zest, key lime, green apple and wet flint. For this style, look to the chilly Sonoma Coast, Carneros, Santa Cruz Mountains, Santa Lucia Highlands and Edna Valley.

The inland zones of California’s coast, such as the Russian River, Sonoma, Napa and Livermore Valleys maintain a more Goldilocks-esque climate where both styles go. Early picking retains acidity and creates a leaner style but leaving the grapes to hang creates an approachable Chardonnay, balancing richness and finesse.

Chardonnay also plays a major part in the sparkling wine production of the Anderson Valley and Carneros.
