2021 Chardonnay, Hammer Olsen Vineyard, Anderson Valley
Grown in a premier block at our home ranch, Navarro Vineyards, and fermented and aged in limited barrels, this vintage is quintessentially “Anderson Valley” -- refreshing as valley fog and bright as the afternoon sun. Our 2021 release has a distinct lemon drop aroma and soft vanilla entry to a lingering caramel finish with notes of Asian pear with fresh-grated nutmeg. We enjoy tasting how the wine’s citrusy characteristics are well-paired with its cheese equivalent, Bollie’s Mollies -- both tangy and long-lasting.
