Pride Mountain Vineyards Chardonnay Napa Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Napa Valley Chardonnay, the only Pride wine produced from non-estate grapes, is sourced from two excellent vineyards in Napa Valley’s Carneros appellation. Cooling morning fog, temperate days and brisk winds from the San Pablo Bay create the perfect environment to fully ripen Chardonnay grapes while maintaining a crisp acidity. This year’s offering expresses melon, green apple, star fruit and hazelnut aromas balanced with just a hint of crème fraiche produced by a 30% malolactic fermentation. Fermenting in 30% new French oak and aging sur lies for nine months adds a roundness and depth to the palate, providing the weight to balance its bright acidity. With its elegant flavors and refreshing finish, this wine is a perfect accompaniment to rich, savory dishes such as grilled halibut, mushroom risotto or an after dinner cheese course.

People immediately understand why the winery estate was previously named "Summit Ranch." The twisting twenty-minute drive west from St. Helena, or east from Santa Rosa, rewards visitors with a stunning view of rugged Mount St. Helena to the northeast and verdant vineyards rising skyward in all directions. Pride Mountain Vineyards is a 235-acre estate with a wooden-beamed, modest-sized winery that blends smoothly into its mountainous surroundings and California heritage. The charming and unpretentious tasting room offers guests the opportunity to sample the latest vintages while chatting with the gracious and knowledgeable staff. County regulations require that visitors hold a prior appointment. Read less
