About Rombauer 2017 Chardonnay, Carneros

With a following that is practically cult-like, Rombauer Chardonnay is a wine that flies out the door at hundreds of restaurants nationwide. The fruit for this 2017 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. A cool spell in August stalled harvest a bit at the outset, but a warm September brought a mad dash to the finish. All in all, 2017 was another high-quality vintage. The low yields and prolonged warm weather resulted in exceptional fruit quality and a richly flavored Chardonnay. 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 barrel for primary and malolactic fermentation. The lees were stirred every two weeks to give the wine rich flavors and a creamy texture. 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 one but it's the same lush, buttery style that you've grown to love. Enjoy it!
