Chardonnay may be the most versatile white wine grape, often seen as a blank canvas. It displays various flavors and aromas depending on where it is grown and more specifically, how it is made. It can range in Palate Character from Bright & Crisp to Rich & Full depending on the climate. It is also particularly malleable and highly affected by winemaking choices like as malolactic fermentation, lees stirring, barrel fermentation and ageing practices.

Mayacamas

Napa, California


Mayacamas has a long history as a top cabernet sauvignon in California. Under its current owner, the Schottenstein family, and winemaker Andy Erickson, respect for tradition remains but is combined with modern winemaking techniques and sustainable farming. 


Mayacamas’s organic dry-farmed vineyards of cabernet, merlot, and chardonnay are located 2,400 feet above the valley floor in Mount Veeder. Their focus is on the purity of the fruit and balance, so grapes are picked early to avoid over-ripeness and aged in neutral oak, with some large foudres dating back to the 1920s.

The wines of Maycamas are exceptional. They are intense and complex, capturing the elusive balance of power and refinement.
