Miner Family Chardonnay Napa Valley 2009
Sourced from select low-yielding vineyards in Napa Valley, our Chardonnay is characterized by crisp apple, ripe melon and citrus flavors gently balanced with toasty French oak. Our winemaker uses malolactic fermentation in moderation to retain the wine's bright acidity. More than a decade after our Chardonnay put us on the map, this wine remains a classic.
Miner Family Winery is a dynamic, family-owned winery tucked along the eastern hills of the Oakville appellation in the heart of Napa Valley. Founded in 1998 by Dave and Emily Miner along with his parents, Ed and Norma, Miner makes reserve style wines using fruit from Napa Valley and other specially selected California vineyards. Winemaker Gary Brookman uses a combination of old world winemaking techniques and modern technology to make wines that reflect the unique characteristics of individual vineyards or "terroir" where specific varietals grow best. The fusion of superb vineyard sites and thoughtful winemaking helps Miner create elegant, expressive wines.
