2015 Zephyr Farms Vineyard Chardonnay

Chardonnay

Taste

The 2015 Zephyr Farms Chardonnay is the fifth vintage Red Car has produced of this wine and it continues to amaze us by
its incredible minerality. Vintage after vintage, this vineyard provides our fans with a distinctly different version of what
California Chardonnay is known to be. In 2015, we were able to pick at naturally high acid levels, giving this wine a distinct
freshness and vivacity with its palate-cleansing brightness. This is an intensely perfumed Chardonnay, with enticing aromas
reminiscent of premier cru Chablis. In addition to the characteristic Prosser clone tastes of wet stone and key-lime, this
bright, zesty wine finds balance by delivering a fleshy, savory melon flavor mid-palate. The Zephyr Farms Vineyard is the
most focused of the Red Car Chardonnays. With less than 3 barrels produced, we invite you to access your limited
allocation in this offer as this wine will sell out upon release.

Philosophy

Red Car produces site-specific wines, focused on achieving bright acidity and lively aromatics. Sustainability is at the core of why we exist. We operate each part of the business from the belief that less is more. We are stewards of the land and of the people who consume our wine to ensure harmony with the Earth. We farm organically to protect the soil and our consumers from artificial chemical intervention. At each harvest, this philosophy makes its way into the cellar where we allow our wines to purely express each vineyard’s unique character. We achieve this by using native yeast fermentation and minimal intervention practices.
