Matthiasson "Linda Vista" Napa Valley Chardonnay 2020Regular price $36.00 Save $-36.00
There would be no "New California" wine movement without Steve Matthiasson. Enough said.
The Linda Vista vineyard was planted in 1989 in the West Oak Knoll area of Napa Valley, where Chardonnay has been made since the 60's as the zone was deemed too cold for growing Carbernet. Steve and Jill farm the vineyard organically, and make one of best examples of Napa Valley Chardonnay on the market. They employ multiple picks throughout the harvest season to create the perfect balance of ripeness and brightness. The wine ferments in used French Oak, giving it nice texture without making the wine too oaky. Crisp yellow apple and juice peach, coupled with the fantastically balanced acidity and body makes this the perfect Chardonnay to share with your mom, no butter bombs.
