Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay 2015

The Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay originates from grapes grown in the relatively cool-climate vineyards of the southern Napa Valley, giving an intense minerality to balance the wine's oaky richness and spice. The wine was fermented in a combination of French Oak (88%) and stainless steel (12%) followed by 8 months barrel age in French oak (35% of which was new).

A proportion of grapes from the northern Napa adds creamy, tropical fruit flavours for a balanced, extremely drinkable wine.
