Enjoy two tasty wines from Grgich Hills Estate. This pairing includes a 2015 Chardonnay and a 2013 Zinfandel.This Chardonnay with bright acidity was created by selected clones in our cool southern estate vineyards and preserved by using low temperature fermentation with indigenous yeast and aged in large French Foudres barrels.The zinfandel is extremely limited production from a few rows of ancient Zinfandel vines that were planted more than 100 years ago on St. George rootstock. Today, Mike Grgich's home overlooks this vineyard in Calistoga. Its northeast exposure catches plenty of morning sun but is shaded from the hot late afternoon sun and combined with the vineyard's gravelly loam soils creates the perfect spot to grow this varietal.
