Luscious aromas of pear and pineapple are
complemented by soft notes of honeysuckle and a touch

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
The grapes come from the estate vineyards in Jameson Canyon and selected 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 which 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.
Winemaking
Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks to retain the purity of fruit. The wine did
not go through malolactic conversion, retaining a crisp style which focuses on the
inherent qualities of the Chardonnay varietal. The wine was aged for 10 months on its
fine lees with periodic lees stirring, which imparted texture. Maturation took place in
100% French oak barrels, 17% new, from Seguin Moreau, Francois Frère and Orion.
Tasting Note
Fragrant aromas of tropical and stone fruits lead to notes of honeysuckle, accentuated
by a touch of toasted almonds. This is a beautifully balanced wine with bright acidity
and a creamy texture with a hint of minerality on the finish.
