Shafer Vineyards Red Shoulder Ranch Chardonnay 2017

The Shafer Vineyards Red Shoulder Ranch Chardonnay is produced from grapes grown on Shafer’s superbly sited, eponymous vineyard in the Napa Valley side of Carneros. Fermentation takes place within individual oak and stainless steel barrels using native yeasts. The wine matures on the lees for 14 months and since it undergoes no malolactic fermentation this Chardonnay retains a lively natural acidity. The vineyard is named for its Red-shouldered Hawks and other birds of prey, who play an important role in Shafer’s sustainable farming practices. The 2017 offers lush, luxurious aromas and flavours of melon, honeysuckle, apricot, pineapple and flint all held together with effortless structure, elegant balance, and energy that comes from pure, Chablis-like acidity.
