Neyers Chardonnay Carneros District 2017 750ml

The 1992 Chardonnay was our first wine labeled as Carneros District. It came from "Shot-Wente selection" grapes grown on three vineyard. "Shot-Wente" is an heirloom Chardonnay selection. It developed naturally in the Wente Brothers Livermore Valley vine nursery in the early 1930’s. The clusters are smaller than normal for Chardonnay - as are the individual grapes - giving them increased skin surface relative to the juice. That enhanced ratio makes the wine especially flavorful.
