2014 Eleanora's Selection Chardonnay

The Buena Vista Vinicultural Society, formed in 1863 by the winery's founder, Count Agoston Haraszthy, to further improve its winemaking prowess and expand its vineyards, has been restored as a collection of unique, small-production wines that honor the winery's pioneering spirit and contribution to California winemaking. The Vinicultural Society explores clonal selections, varietals and the incredible terroir of Northern California.

Named for Count Haraszthy’s wife, Eleanora’s Selection Chardonnay is harvested from the windswept Hawk Hill vineyard and the late ripening Stubb’s Vineyard. After hand harvesting in mid-October, the wine was whole cluster pressed, fermented in open top fermenters with lees stirred and hand punch downs. The wine was barrel fermented in tight-grained, 100% French oak barrels (25% new) for 13 months and then bottled unfiltered.

Our 2014 Eleanora's Selection Chardonnay offers intoxicating aromas of lemon crème and caramel with a hint of vanilla. Flavors of baked apples, nutmeg and dried apricot spread across the palate. Medium-plus body and medium acid make this beautifully balanced and the perfect pairing to grilled lobster or creamy, mild cheeses.
