Bright* Lively * Nutmeg* Fig

The Hendry Chard is a flat-out GORGEOUS Chardonnay any way you slice it. This reminds us of a very fine White Burgundy, or perhaps some of the tippy-top examples from CA. FINE is the word (or graceful, harmonious, resplendent or sublime…), and crazily complex and delicious. Literally makes your mouth water with fantastic freshness and uber-complex layers of flavor.

Meet George Hendry

The Hendry family has been farming the same vineyard in Napa since 1939. The lessons learned in more than 75 harvests provide George with a high level of knowledge and a unique connection to the land. The Hendry Ranch is composed of 203 acres situated in the hills north-west of Napa, which include 114 acres of vineyard. This latitude and location in the valley experiences substantial marine influence and allows us to grow 11 different varietals, each carefully distributed among our many vineyard blocks. All Hendry wines are made from estate grapes. George Hendry's wines are crafted to highlight the terroir of the vineyard.

 

About the Wine

The 2015 Chardonnay is barrel fermented and sur lie and aged in French oak barrels for 11 months, without racking.  Approximately one-third to one-half of the barrels are new each year. Our Barrel Fermented Chardonnay does not undergo any malolactic fermentation, which is important for retaining its food-friendly malic acidity.

Pale gold color. Initial aromas of soft spice and toasted nuts overlaying dried apple fruit and cardamom. Aromas of oak are very soft. On the palate, medium-bodied, with bright pineapple-green apple acidity, and flavors of baked yellow apples and skins. Our favorite pairings for this wine are scallops in a buttery sauce, baked or roasted fish with lemon-butter, Manchego cheese, white pizzas and crab cakes.
