The Napa Cellars Chardonnay displays the classic Napa Valley Chardonnay characteristics unique to this region. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit, honey melon and baked apple crisp excite the senses. The palate consists of crème fraiche, butterscotch and pear, with smooth, integrated flavors of toasted oak. This Chardonnay exhibits soft, creamy, balanced acidity and subtle notes of spice, clove and anise to complete the finish.

Grapes for the Napa Cellars Chardonnay are hand and machine-picked from vineyards in prime Chardonnay locations including South Napa Valley and Carneros. The proximity of the vineyards to the fog and breeze from San Francisco and Marin Bay create a cooler climate which is conducive to the cultivation of varietals like Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. These coastal effects also allow for a longer growing season, giving the fruit more time on the vines and helping produce energetic acidity and flavorful fruit.

Producers notes

The same year that Napa was granted the status of agricultural preserve, self-made man Charlie R. Woods founded our winery on five and a half acres of prime Oakville soil. In the 1970s, he built a geodesic dome there to store barreled wine, and he concentrated on making reds, in particular Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The winery changed hands a number of times before being purchased in 1996 by Koerner Rombauer and Rich Frank. That’s when we earned our reputation for rich, buttery Chardonnay—a style that was becoming popular in the United States at the time.

A decade later, the Trinchero family was looking for a winery property that would capture the essence of Napa. Napa Cellars, with its ideal Oakville location and fame for luscious Chardonnay and authentic Napa reds, was the obvious choice. Winemaker Joe Shirley came on board a year later, in 2007. He has since introduced French oak to our Chardonnay for a more balanced and contemporary style of wine.

Shipping

Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)

In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").

Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.

For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.

Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes. For estimated delivery times and further information see here. If you have any additional questions, please email us on sales@wineexperience.com.au or call us on 1300 55 44 35
