Winemaker's notes: "Long, cool fermentation in a mixture of old and new barrels gives our Chardonnay layers of fruitiness and complexity that result in a wine that is very enjoyable when young or after several years of bottle age. This method of fermentation, in conjunction with whole cluster pressing and "sur lie" aging add layers of toastiness and creaminess to the wine. Together these components meld together harmoniously to create a balanced wine that is both lively and rich in aroma and flavor."
Producer
In 1981, Dennis and Judy Groth purchased 121 acres in Napa Valley's Oakville appellation ? prime Cabernet Sauvignon land. The wines gained immediate recognition and Robert Parker awarded the 1985 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon the distinction of California's first 100 point wine. The Groths have since purchased another 44 acres in the Hillview vineyard in Yountville. Making great wine takes dedication and experience. Vineyard manager, Ben Benson, joined Groth in 1982. His years of experience at the estate have helped him identify the ideal vines to plant in the each location, matching soil types to rootstock, to grape clone, to trellising. Michael Weis, winemaker since 1994, has more than three decades of experience with Oakville grapes and wines. In addition to their legendary Cabernets, Groth also produces consistently fine Chardonnay, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc.
