Winemaker Notes Our Directors Chardonnay comes from several cool-climate vineyards that have substantially different daytime-nighttime temperatures. This differential works to extend the growing season and help the grapes retain their natural acidity for better balance. Made from Chardonnay Clones 4 & 15, our fruit is harvested in the early morning hours, whole-cluster pressed, and fermented in oak for a rich, silky texture. Tasting Notes Our Francis Ford Coppola Directors Chardonnay is lavishly fruity, round and lush. Endowed with a soft, velvety palate and ripe citrus perfume, this wine has mouthwatering flavors of melon, pear, clove and vanilla. Pair with crab legs, chicken pot pie, or a grilled cheese panini.
