2013 Moone-Tsai Napa Valley Chardonnay

Scheduled Release - July 1, 2015

The nose of our 2013 Napa Valley Chardonnay playfully beckons with delicate notes of lemon curd, and grapefruit. Minerally-accented at the outset, the wine gracefully moves to a fullness in the mouth with rich, ripe fruit highly reminiscent of an artfully prepared Bananas Foster; revealing a satisfying mid-palate, subtle leesy notes, and a well-balanced acidity. By way of barrel fermentation and 16 months of aging in 60% new French oak, the wine is both pretty and plush...leaving a memorable impression of elegance, structure, brightness and versatility. Aged 16 months in 60% new French oak the wine has undergone 100% malolactic fermentation.
