Quilt Chardonnay 2018


For this Chardonnay, we relied on vineyards from the Oak Knoll and Carneros Districts where the climate is distinctly cooler and foggier than the northern environs of Napa Valley. Carneros is a world unto itself. For one, much of the soil is sedimentary clay loam with heavy gravel due to the region’s proximity to the mouth of the valley. This soil, combined with the chilling winds of the marine influence, yields a Chardonnay grape with impressive structure and a flinty minerality.

TASTING NOTES COLOR: Pale straw yellow with golden hues. AROMATICS: Juicy white peach, honeysuckle, pear, white plum, and nectarine with notes of citrus and star anise.

PALATE: Refreshing stone fruit, kiwi, apricot, nectarine, and meyer lemon zest followed by hints of lightly toasted oak.

STRUCTURE: Bright, medium bodied, and rich with smooth and generous layers. Complex, mouthwatering acidity with a lively finish.
