Hope's Cuvée Chardonnay
The Chardonnay was picked in two batches – the original vines from the 1940s were picked first and the younger, replanted vines picked later allowing fruit to ripen perfectly for both sections. The fruit was whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented with native microflora. To preserve acidity and freshness, the wines were stopped at 50% malolactic fermentation. The wines were aged sur lie in 50% new oak for 8 months prior to bottling.
Our 2018 Hope’s Cuvee Chardonnay is a gorgeous wine with striking richness and depth. Citrus peel, lemon custard, apricots, honey and subtle floral notes give the wine a complex bouquet. The wine is more generous on the palate with a creamy texture, balanced acidity which is well representative of the opulent vintage. The wine finishes with a saline minerality framed in notes of French Oak, hazelnut and spice.Wine Resources
Cabernet Sauvignon Estate
Our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon can be called Padrone’s favorite son. It inherited Padrone’s intense varietal aromas and concentrated flavor. Yet, because the grapes are sourced from several of our younger less rocky parcels with a variety of exposures, clones and soil types, it enjoys a softer tannin structure. This wine boasts full flavors that are intended to be enjoyed over the next 20 years.
Inky purple-colored, with notes of charcoal, graphite, blackcurrants and blueberries, the wine is dense, opulent, full-bodied, fresh and full.Wine Resources
Padrone is created in honor of Ray Signorello Sr., a visionary whose life was as full of character as our wines. It is a seamless integration of supple tannins, intense varietal aromas and rich flavor that expresses the utmost quality of the Estate. The grapes for this proprietary Cabernet Sauvignon are sourced from the best blocks of our extremely rocky hillside vineyard. To preserve fruit intensity and body, the wine was not fined or filtered prior to bottling.
This deeply colored Cabernet Sauvignon presents aromas of rich blackberry, cedar and a touch of vanilla. On the palate the wine shows flavors of dark cherry, and mocha with a full mouthfeel and long distinguished finish. This elegantly textured wine will age gracefully over the next 20-30 years.Wine Resources
