The J. McClelland 2013 Chardonnay comes from the Oakville sub appellation of Napa Valley, home of some of the region’s best Chardonnay wines. Throughout Napa Valley, the climate is influenced by the marine air from the Pacific Ocean - the cool air collects in Carneros (the coolest region of the Valley) and as the air travels north, it becomes progressively warmer (Oakville is in central Napa Valley, so it is warmer, but not too warm).
The J. McClellan 2013 Chardonnay represents a more modern winemaking approach with minimal oak tones, lovely crisp dryness, and refreshingly bright acidity that really highlights the fresh fruit notes. This wine is opulent, full-bodied, and beautifully balanced.
