92 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine
"Although there’s a lot of oak on this wine, it’s not heavy or fat in the excessive California style, because the underlying wine is so crisp and elegant. Call it Chablisian. It shows mineral, Meyer lemon and lime flavors, with brilliant acidity. Really quite a fine Carneros Chardonnay."


Winegrowing
The Etude Chardonnay is sourced exclusively from our Estate vineyard in Carneros. The vineyard is farmed to Etude’s exacting standards, using ecologically sound viticultural practices. We grow and ultimately pick focusing on intensity of flavor, strong varietal delineation and ideal natural balance. This wine is a pure expression of Chardonnay and of our Estate vineyard. A collection of clones and selections, including one Heirloom selection, combine to create this Chardonnay. After a gentle pressing, one-third of the juice is transferred to small stainless steel vats and two thirds to neutral French oak barrels for fermentation and sur lie aging. The wine is allowed to mature undisturbed for ten months before bottling.
