Excellent white wine Chardonnay, Carneros created the famous winery of California Buena Vista from the same grape variety grown in the region of Carneros. The aroma of wine is fragrant floral and citrus tones, and deep and seductive flavor captures notes of ripe fruit. For the production of wine grapes Chardonnay harvested by hand at night to keep the fruity character of the berries. After sorting and pressing, the wine is fermented in barrels. Then within 8 months the wine is aged in barrels of French and Hungarian oak, with over 38% of French oak barrels - new. Due to the slow shutter speed, the wine takes on a great depth and complexity of fruit and spice character.
In the 1970s, the winery Buena Vista began to study the little-known and undeveloped areas on the border of Sonoma and Napa's southern border, known as the Carneros. Constant breezes of San Pablo Bay made this area the most windy. Located on an area of 90 square miles and extends along the southern tip of the ridge Mayakamas (Mayacamas), with a height above sea level to 400 feet. Soils are mainly clay and loam, rich in calcium. Persistent winds, high altitude and sparse soil is not able to produce a large crop of grapes, but instead offer a fruit with a very intense, rich aroma and rich, expressive taste. It is for these qualities winemakers appreciate locally grown grapes, and produce wines that have no equal anywhere in the world. This cool region, which has become home to many varieties of grapes, is rightly earned the title of master of wine District of California. More: https://winestyleonline.com
