Steele Canyon Chardonnay 2017, Napa Valley
This release is well balanced with crisp notes of grapefruit,
citrus, melon and pomelo accented by hints of
vanilla and oak barrel butterscotch.
It was hand harvested and crushed within six hours to
protect the delicate aromas and flavors. Three separate
lots of Chardonnay were fermented in stainless steel
using three different yeasts to enhance the complexity,
body, flavors and aromas. Malolactic fermentation was
used for 20% of the lot, followed by ten months in a combination
of one and two year old French oak barrels.
This full bodied Chardonnay has the character and
elegance to enhance a broad range of cuisine today, and
it will continue to develop in the bottle for years to come
Steele Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Napa Valley
This fruit was hand harvested and aged for 24 months in new and second vintage French and American oak.
The dark cherry and gentle licorice flavors lead to a long, layered finish with very smooth tannins.
Bottle aging will add to the complexity.
