Producer Note
Raymond Vineyards, founded in 1970, is one of the Napa Valley’s pioneering estates.
The Raymond family arrived in Napa in 1933 and have become deeply connected
to the valley’s winemaking origins. In 1970, they established a 36 hectare estate in
Rutherford, which now comprises 121 hectares in Rutherford, St. Helena and
Jameson Canyon. Raymond’s Rutherford and St. Helena estate vineyards are
certified organic and biodynamic; and 100% of the winery’s power comes from
renewable solar energy. Five generations of the Raymond family have created a
Napa icon, with an enduring reputation for elegant wines with a beautiful balance
of finesse, opulence and complexity.


Vineyard
Sourced from the finest North and Central Coast vineyards throughout California,
with each area adding a unique layer into the overall taste profile.


Winemaking
Minimal intervention winemaking techniques were used to allow the true Californian
terroir to shine through. Primarily fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the
freshness and varietal characteristics of the Chardonnay grape, a small proportion
was fermented in oak to add subtle complexity. It underwent partial malolactic
fermentation which developed a creamy texture, while retaining balancing acidity.


Tasting Note
The fresh, floral nose opens with bright citrus notes complemented by a touch of
honeysuckle. Crisp, with tangy citrus notes on the exquisitely balanced palate, this
wine is smooth on the finish.
