Levendi Red Hen Chardonnay 2004
Brilliant and straw-like in appearance. Lush, ripe fruit. Pineapple and peaches on the nose. Lively and rich with excellent balance of ripe peach and pineapple fruit. Charming acidity with a long elegant finish. The Red Hen Ranch is located in the Oak Knoll appellation of Napa Valley, which consistently produces incredibly lush and concentrated Chardonnay grapes. The vineyard is planted on the Wente clone, which is well known producing for small berries.
100% Chardonnay. The Gianulias family has a strong Greek tradition of private winemaking dating back for centuries. Since 1926, on American—and Napa Valley—soil, they have propagated, refined, and developed special handcrafted vintages to share with their family and yours. The family's estate is named after the Greek toast ("Levendi") which acknowledges a hard day's labor and achievement. It celebrates the fields, the rain, and the sun that nurture their special grapes. Essentially, it's a toast "to celebrate life." And it is the philosophy on which the Gianulis family crafts their wine. To honor the sanctity of one of the most loved and revered varietals in the world, Levendi has crafted this exquisite Chardonnay. Known for its ideal climate and rich complexity, the Red Hen Vineyard has given them bountiful and immaculate fruit that captures the rich essence of Napa Valley. At Levendi, wine is a celebration of life and a day of hard work. They invite you to raise your glasses and savor the moment with Levendi Chardonnay.
