2012 Finch Hollow Chardonnay
2012 Finch Hollow Chardonnay

After selling out of our previous vintage and then waiting for this vintage to be perfectly  aged, we are excited to release the 2012 Finch Hollow Chardonnay. Barrel fermented in 100% new French Burgundy Oak, and sur-lie aged with weekly stirring, the result is a bright, sunshine yellow wine with aromas of tropical fruit and caramel.

The distinct terroir of the Finch Hollow vineyard is what Winemaker Consultant Dimitri Tchelistcheff believes contributes to the intense tropical fruit character of this luxurious wine.  Barrel fermentation in new French oak and sur-lie aging add richness and texture to the palate.  Lush floral aromas are complemented by ripe, mouth-filling, bright fruit.  The sunshine yellow color is enhanced by a very light filtering and fining of the wine.  The 100% malolactic fermentation and 9 months aging in new French Burgundy oak polish this elegant wine; it is sure to make those you share it with feel privileged.

92 Points.  Gold Medal Exceptionsl. Beverage Testing Institute. Golden color. Bold oaky aromas of toasted hazelnut brittle, vanilla cream and roasted pineapple with a silky, fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body and a long, spiced apple, nougat, and meringue finish. A delicious wood accented chardonnay that screams Napa. Pair with plank roasted fish.

93 Points. Wine Enthusiast. Jarvis has assembled a great record with this bottling over the years. The 2012 fulfills all the basic California requirements for impressive Chardonnay, with ripe, flamboyant tropical fruit, pear and pineapple flavors, along with lots of sweet, buttery, vanilla-accented oak. This is one of the most decadent Chardonnays of the vintage, and while it’s a little soft, it is flashy. - S. Heimoff, (May, 2014)
