Lockhart Cellars source top-notch grapes from carefully selected, sustainably farmed vineyards in Napa and Sonoma counties, and make their wines according to a philosophy of minimal intervention in the vineyard and the winery, with new oak avoided in order to let the fruit shine.
Their Chardonnay is partially tank and barrel fermented, but it's not a big oaky style, instead it leans more to freshness and minerality alongside the crisp melon and white peach fruit. Just lightly fined and filtered. A brilliant, refreshing, crystalline Californian Chardonnay.
