With a follow that is practically cult-like" Rombauer Chardonnay is a wine that flies out the door at hundreds of restaurants nationwide. The fruit for this 2014 comes from vineyards in the Carneros region owned by the Rombauer family and select growers including the Sangiacomo family, long-term grower partners who have farmed this land for three generations. The grapes were gently whole-cluster pressed while the fruit was still cool. The juice was pumped to tank to cold-settle overnight before it was racked to barrels for fermentation. Barrel fermentation took place in French and American oak, 1/3 new. The wine aged 9 months on the lees stirred every two weeks to give it rich flavors and a creamy texture. No scores yet for this 2014 but due to their sourcing abilities and winemaking expertise, this is a wine that is incredibly consistent vintage after vintage. Wine Spectator scored the 2013 93 points saying "A creamy-textured, charming style thatís easy to drink yet is deceptively complex and layered, with a mix of vanilla-scented oak and vibrant peach, nectarine, honeydew and apricot flavors. Long on the finish."
