Winemaker Chris Pisani Notes
The harvest of 2008 marked our 40th crush and we are celebrating that milestone with an anniversary label. Over the years, this California Chardonnay has evolved to be recognized as a hallmark of ZD Wines. We have created a unique character by blending the distinct attributes of the cool growing regions of Napa and Sonoma Carneros as well as the fog shrouded Santa Maria valley in Santa Barbara and the cool, windy Arroyo Seco in Monterey.

Our winemaking techniques are designed to preserve and enhance the character of this fruit. We use a long slow cold barrel fermentation and allow no malo-lactic fermentation to maintain the natural acidity and flavor. Aging in lightly toasted American Oak barrels gives us hints of sweet ...more... vanilla and coconut and adds a depth to the wine through slow evaporation and concentration. Please enjoy this full, rich, well-balanced wine and join us in celebrating 40 years of growing our family business.
