Sterling Vineyards sources Napa Valley wines from 14 diverse vineyards that span 1200 acres of prime growing area, from the southern Carneros District to Diamond Mountain Ranch up north near the town of Calistoga. A wide range of growing conditions allows them to cultivate each kind of wine grape in the precise terroir that enhances its truest varietal expression-for the impeccable taste Sterling Vineyards is famous for.
The 2007 Sterling Vineyards Napa Valley Chardonnay displays elegant balance in its array of bright fruit and rich, creamy aromas and flavors. Fresh pear and ripe apple character, lightly accented with white floral and tropical fruit notes, mingle with vanilla and oak spices in the enticing aromas. The flavors mirror the aromas, picking up notes of melon, and then culminate in a toasty oak finish.
