2013 Croze Chardonnay Napa Valley

About the Wine

This 2015 Chardonnay comes from Simone Vineyard in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. It is barrel aged sur lie and bottled without malolactic inoculation. 

This is one of the few remaining mid-valley Chardonnay vineyards. It is owned and farmed by Jim Simpson, a truly gifted grower of grapes as well as fine vegetables for Napa Valley's premier restaurants. This is a sweet spot for Chardonnay which benefits from the "chimney effect" of San Pablo Bay. Like the French Mistrals of France's Burgundy region, the cool breezes and morning fog provide a cooler climate, ideal for these tender grapes.

Try this wine with pasta and cream sauces, roast poultry, and soft cheeses.
