Oak Knoll District

Taylor Family Vineyards’ Hillside Chardonnay is made in a very old-world, Burgundian style. This highly aromatic wine is richly balanced with bright acidity and a silky texture. It exhibits bright elements of fresh sliced apple, white flowers and Meyer lemon zest. On the palate there are notes of tarte tatin, fresh butter and bergamot. The mouthfeel is at once fresh and bright but culminates with the texture of panna cotta that is lush and round. The Musque clone of Chardonnay that creates this wine hails from the Oak Knoll District on the southern end of Napa adjacent to the Mayacamas Mountain range. It gets beautiful morning sun that creates rich, classic flavors and cool shade in the afternoon to preserve the fresh mouthfeel. Enjoy now or over the next decade.

Family Favorite Pairing: Salmon Rillettes
