Our 2018 Moon Mountain Chardonnay is the style of white wine that we dreamed about creating six years ago when we first built Theorem Vineyards. This ultra-premium wine has bright, fresh, and vibrant flavors that distinguish it from other Chardonnays. It is not the oaky-buttery Chardonnay that many people think of when they hear the phrase “Napa Chardonnay.”
This wine was produced from our 34-acre Moon Mountain estate, nestled at the top of Moon Mountain. The climate is heavily affected by the Pacific Ocean and the San Pablo Bay. As a result, the grapes are treated to warm days and cool nights. This unique climate coupled with the high elevation and volcanic soils creates a perfect micro-climate to grow the grapes that make this distinctive world-class wine.
The 2018 Theorem Vineyards Chardonnay is bright and fresh, with notes of freshly squeezed lemon, tart pineapple, lime blossom, honeysuckle, and crushed rocks. On the palate, the bright citrus notes meld with a creamy texture reminiscent of lemon meringue, with a similar ethereal lift. Just as the flavors envelop your palate, a beam of vibrant acidity slices through the creamy texture and creates a finish that is refreshingly bright and lingering.
