Winemaker's Tasting Notes

“This wine has a pretty light straw hue. It offers lovely aromas right out of the glass. Floral, delicate with fruit driven pear, crisp apple lemon notes. There is a creamy inviting vanilla nougat with a refreshing brightness. It is lively in mouth, some might even say a bit racy. Excellent mid plate retention finishes with a mouthwatering, clean minerality, and hint of citrus rind.” – Winemakers Anne Vawter & Jennifer Rue

About The Vineyard

“Our winemakers refer to the Hoopes Napa Valley Chardonnay as our Goldilocks Chardonnay: not too rich and not too lean, it’s just right! We blend this wine across distinct Chardonnay sites. This unique combination joins the best of our cooler hilltop and valley floor blocks into one beautiful glass. We gain citrus and apple characteristics from our early- pick, mid-valley vineyard and pretty layered stone fruit notes from the thinner soils at our hilltop site. Hoopes Napa Valley Chardonnay is sure to delight any wine lover’s palate. Cheers!”


– Second Generation Proprietor Lindsay Hoopes
