We are very excited about this wonderful new Chardonnay! The grapes were grown by our long time partners, Stepping Stone Vineyards just up the road from Valley View. They were harvested perfectly ripe, immediately pressed off the skins and fermented cool in stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged after fermentation on the lees to develop greater flavors and textures and then a portion was aged in French oak to add a nice vanilla, bread toast and cream finish. This wine goes with a lot of different foods and will continue to improve well into 2023. It is an exceptional value.
