The Raymond family arrived in Napa Valley in 1933 and became connected to the Beringer family via marriage in 1936. Roy worked as a winemaker for Beringer from 1933-1970.
In 1970, he and his two sons set out on their own with the 90-acre estate property in Rutherford where the winery is located.
They released their first commercial wine under the Raymond Vineyards label in 1974 and never looked back. Like all great American family stories, the Raymonds put hard work and a pioneering spirit into their winery. Their dedication has helped make Raymond Vineyards a classic Napa Valley icon.
The grapes for this Chardonnay were primarily harvested from our Jameson Canyon vineyard in south Napa before being 100% barrel fermented in small, French oak barrels. Using no malolactic fermentation, the wine was sur lie aged for 7 months with lees stirring every two weeks before being blended and bottled.
Opening with enticing aromas of green apple, pear and lemon-cream pie, this is a richly layered Chardonnay.
Flavors of white peach, toasted almonds and mango are highlighted by accents of honeysuckle and vanilla.
With bright acidity, this is a fresh and vibrant wine with notes of nutmeg and a subtle creaminess on the finish.
