Paint Horse Winery’s 2012 Carneros Chardonnay comes from two of the region’s most special vineyard blocks, Green Valley and Sangiacomo. Carneros is a unique AVA in northern California that straddles Sonoma and Napa counties. It is one of the coolest wine growing areas in California wine country and its vineyards benefit from a combination of mountain elevation and the constant cooling effect of fog and breezes from the nearby San Pablo Bay. The result is one of the most sought after growing regions for the Burgundian varietals, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Paint Horse’s 2012 Chardonnay offers aromas of Pippin apple, pear and citrus with hints of sweet vanilla and toasty oak. The palate evolves into ripe fruit flavors with notes of hazelnuts. The texture is creamy with bright acidity and the finish is long and lingering.
