All the pieces of a delicious, full-flavored Chardonnay fit together like a Jenga tower (before the game begins). Tropical fruits, fresh nectarine, apple and Meyer lemon, brown pie spices, buttered toast: they’re all here. Creamy texture and more spice on the finish with some brown butter and pineapple. For lovers of richer-style California Chardonnay, this is a slam dunk.
Rapp Ranch is owned/made by Napa’s Shadybrook Estate. The wines are made by the talented and personable Rudy Zuidema (Rapp Ranch and Shadybrook both). Not only are the wines very good, this is also an awesome winery to visit. Gorgeous setting, delicious wines, friendly staff…and horse rides available too!
