Hibou chardonnay 2019, wildcrafted wines, Napa Valley, Carneros wildcraftedwines.com
On Sale

HIBOU Chardonnay, Napa Valley

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • Pronouned ee-boo, which means owl and represents the wild and natural beauty found in small, pristine vineyards
  • Winemaker Jason Driscoll's culinary background is evident in his balanced and refined wines made to be food-friendly
  • A single vineyard wine from the heart of Carneros - Hilary’s Vineyard

WINEMAKER:  Jason Driscoll (Hunnicutt, DeSante Wines, Tilth, Chalk Hill, Elsom Cellars)

WHAT WE TASTED

True to the “black Chardonnay” Burgundian winemaking style, Jason allows the highly concentrated Calera clone fruit to oxidize for 24 hours, turning a frighteningly dark brown before the wine returns to its bright golden color as it ferments.  With its ripe fruit core, tangerine zest, and nuttiness this wine is balanced, textured and expressive. Will age beautifully too!
 

AVA DESIGNATED: Napa Valley

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Grilled corn with cotija cheese and poblano
  • Lobster with cream sauce of course
  • Farmhouse cheddar cheese

PERSONALITY

"I watch the barrel, this living thing, and envision what it will become over its lifespan. I’ve learned to let it be, intervene only as it makes sense, follow its singular story over the course of the year."
 JASON DRISCOLL, PROPRIETOR & WINEMAKER
