2012 Neyers Chardonnay Carneros image

The 2012 harvest had the advantages of being very good for quality and for quantity. We had a warm, dry harvest season on the heels of a mild summer, and several growers reported a record crop. Our Carneros District Chardonnay comes from three vineyards planted to 'Shot Wente' selection. All are in the cool-weather area of Carneros, near the San Francisco Bay. 'Shot Wente' is an heirloom Chardonnay selection with grapes that are smaller than normal, giving them increased skin surface relative to the juice. That ratio makes the wine especially flavorful.



 



Their bread and butter wine around 5800 cases produced and there is 25% new barrel here sourced from three different vineyard sites. Has a good amount of ripe tropical fruit here on the nose with hints of lightly toasted oak spice, a touch of vanilla and nutmeg spice to the nose. A fruit forward California Chardonnay with a nice hand of lightly toasted oak spice and good freshness and balance on the finish, not a blockbuster style but has lovely balance and a nice hand of oak spice. Finish 40+ Excellent +
