  • This exquisite wine presents luscious scents of ripe pear and juicy pineapple, interwoven with delicate hints of fragrant honeysuckle and subtly toasted oak. It has a luxuriously creamy texture and a lingering, satisfying finish. Produced by the esteemed Raymond family, whose winemaking legacy spans five generations, this wine has become a Napa Valley symbol, renowned for its graceful blend of finesse, opulence, and intricate complexity.

Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks to retain the purity of the fruit. The wine did not undergo malolactic conversion, maintaining a crisp style that focuses on the inherent qualities of the Chardonnay varietal. The wine was aged 10 months on its fine lees with periodic lees stirring, imparting texture. Maturation took place in 100% French oak barrels, 17% new, from Seguin Moreau, Francois Frere, and Orion.

Luscious aromas of tropical and stone fruits are complemented by delicate notes of honeysuckle and a touch of toasted oak. The palate is creamy and textured, with a refreshing balance and a hint of minerality on the finish.

The grapes come from the estate vineyards in Jameson Canyon and are selected by Napa Valley growers. The estate vineyards are planted on rolling hills at the southern end of Napa Valley. The growing conditions in the Jameson Canyon are very similar to Carneros, the neighbouring appellation just west of the Napa River. Winds flow through Jameson Canyon, bringing the cooling influence of the nearby Pacific Ocean and providing a long, cool growing season that enhances and concentrates the intensity of the varietal characteristics. A proportion of grapes are harvested from vineyards in Carneros and the Napa Valley, which lend more texture and structure to the blend. The vines are grown sustainably and are certified by Napa Green, Fish Friendly Farming, and the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance.
