Chardonnay 2016

BNA Wine Group

Winemaker Tony Leonardini is a former volunteer fire fighter in Napa Valley. Ask and he will share stories about traveling the state to put out fires. The “Volunteer” wine salutes that spirit. As Tony says, “it’s easy to donate a dollar, but it’s a lot harder to volunteer an hour.”

WINEMAKING: After a rollercoaster 2015 vintage, we settled into an ideal 2016 vintage. Mellow, even weather led to normal to above average yields with tremendous quality. Wines from the 2016 vintage are crisp and vibrant. It could possibly be one of the top vintages in the last two decades.

TASTING NOTES: The 2016 Volunteer Chardonnay is a classic Napa Valley Chardonnay with flavors and style that will fit on every table. This wine is rich and creamy with hints of citrus, pear, and vanilla.

FOOD PAIRINGS: The Volunteer Chardonnay pairs well with grilled fish and spring vegetables, a creamy vegetable soup, or even a rich vanilla cake for dessert.
