Staglin Family Vineyard "Salus" Chardonnay, Rutherford, Napa Valley, California, USA, 2021
Grape: Chardonnay, barrel fermented, aged 10 months on its lees in 500L oak puncheons (21% new oak)
Established originally in 1865, the Staglin Family purchased the property in 1985. The vineyard is located on the lower slopes of Mount St. John (highest mountain in the Mayacamas Range). It has 51 acres of certified organic vineyards on volcanic derived soils and a fully underground winery completed in 2002.
The 2021 Salus Chardonnay provides an adventure for the senses. It welcomes with perfectly ripened citrus, delicate florals, and limestone minerality. The expressive aromas deliver baked pear tart, a hint of fresh nutmeg and twist of Meyer lemon. The palate showcases juicy apricot, brûléed white grapefruit drizzled with fir honey, and the surprising texture of silky mango. The richness of sun warmed fruit is beautifully balanced by acidity focusing the entire experience.
