Pride Mountain Vineyards Napa Valley Chardonnay is a magnificent, sophisticated white wine from California, USA. Boasting a splendid gold colour, it oozes notes of toasty oak, fresh pear, citrus fruits and vanilla. On the palate, this full-bodied Chardonnay displays a splendid balance between ripened fruit flavours, racy minerality and firm acidity, culminating in a pleasantly enduring finish. Ideal for seafood dishes or a creamy pasta, this lusciously rich wine is a delightful treat for any discerning oenophile's collection. It's highly lauded for its exemplary expression of Napa Valley’s characteristic vibrant fruit, coupled with an unpretentious, engaging character.
Soaring aromatics of mint, sage, lemon peel, beeswax, white pepper and rain on pavement complement the classic fruit flavors of crisp apple and pear. This wine is filled with verve and energy from start to finish, possessing rounded luxuriance in the attack and an exciting crispness that builds with each second in your mouth. A beautiful wine that is precisely the chardonnay we want to be making.
About the Winery
Nestled atop the Mayacamas Mountains, straddling the renowned wine regions of both Sonoma and Napa counties, resides the distinguished Pride Mountain Vineyards. It boasts an astounding 235-acre estate. This Los Angeles vineyard is a testament to the prowess of vine cultivation in the verdant lands of Northern California. Bear in mind, when you visit this winery, half of you will be in Sonoma Valley and the rest; in the prestigious Napa Valley.
In the hands of the Pride family since 1991, the vineyard leans into its mountaintop terroir to produce wine of superior quality. Not only does it bask in the California sunshine, but the vineyard also benefits from cool marine air blowing in from the nearby Pacific Ocean, creating a perfect environment for cultivating grapes.
At 2,100 feet above the sea level, the vineyard is committed to sustainable farming practices. They employ 'dry farming' techniques, conserving water by relying solely on the groundwater and rainfall. This not only benefits the environment, but some experts assert that it enhances the flavour of the grapes, and in turn, the wine.
