1999 SHV Chardonnay

Vintage:   Wine:

Palest straw color. The aroma of this wine is of subtle sweet apple, and its fresh fruit flavors fairly burst in your mouth. This vintage of our SHV is a pleasing, light, refreshing Napa Valley Chardonnay at a very affordable price. As you know, we make it from the grapes from our youngest vines, so it is not meant to be aged but to be enjoyed in the next two to four years.
