The Chardonnay Vertical
Discover the vintage characteristics and stylistic nuances of our iconic Chardonnay within The Chardonnay Vertical. Consistency is one of the hallmarks of our wines. We strive to showcase the differences and nuances of each growing season, while always staying true to the signature Montelena framework. Consistency here certainly does not mean complacency; we are continually making small changes and adjustments to further improve the outstanding quality of this wine.
We harvest our fruit when the sweetness, acidity, and flavors are in perfect balance — which is why our Chardonnay ages so well. Through these three, distinct vintages, you will see how we remain true to the Montelena style: no malolactic fermentation, little if any yeast stirring, judicious use of new oak, purity of fruit and fine balance. This 6 bottle vertical is perfect for enjoying now or for building your own robust collection.
