Grown on the steep slopes along the northern boundary of the Los Carneros AVA planted to 20+ year old Martini, Hyde & Dijon clone. 100% native fermented in 15% stainless steel, 30% new French oak barrels & puncheons, 55% neutral oak. 50% ML. This is a bright Chardonnay, with the beautiful layers of fruit bursting in the glass - notes of honeysuckle, orange blossom, key lime and golden peach.The techniques used are designed to retain the signature Los Carneros aromas of lemon-citrus and white blossom while accentuating the minerality and vivid, fresh fruit flavors of citrus and stone fruits in the wine. Partial barrel fermentation and lees stirring create complex layers that impart hints of oak and wrap the flavors in a rich, generously textured mouthfeel and elegant finish.2,500 cases produced
Artesa Vineyards & Winery's roots date back to the 1980's when the Raventf3s family, heirs of the Spanish winemaking dynasty Codornedu, began to acquire and develop vineyard land in the Carneros region of Napa Valley. Originally opened as a sparkling wine house--Codornedu Napa--in 1991, the winery ultimately transitioned to producing still wines as successive vintages revealed the quality and potential of the family's vineyard holdings. The winery was renamed Artesa-Catalan for "handcrafted"-in 1997, and has since become a leading producer of limited-production artisan wines from the varietals for which Carneros is best known-Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.One of Artesa's most distinctive features is its hillside winery in Carneros, an avant-garde structure conceived to blend seamlessly with the surrounding landscape. Designed by renowned Barcelona architect Domingo Triay and executed by Napa architect Earl R. Bouligny, the striking winery is set into the highest hill of Artesa's 350-acre estate, its rooftop concealed by a protective covering of native grasses. With fountains, sculpture and modern art gracing its outdoor spaces and light-filled tasting room, Artesa is one of most visited wineries in Napa Valley.
